I Lov Love, Love My New Doctor!

Recommended Posts

I went for my second with my new doc, a D.O. Andrew Mlenyek. My visit today was for a pulled groin muscle (ouch!) My first visit was a get to know you and I was very confident with his Celiac knowledge.

I mentioned today that I still have some unidentifed secondary food intolerances,and he whipped out a form to get tested for immuno something (I will post results when I get them) that he thinks will ID the problem. Without begging!

I figured I was on a roll, so I asked him what he thought about my constant itchiness (not DH, just itchy), then he explained that it is just a part of Celiac, and to try Zyrtec for some relief. I am so excited to know that MY doctor knows that many of these weird things are due to Celiac, and not something that is in my head. After 7 other docs thwt knew NOTHING about this, I am just so happy, I had to share!

He's in Huntington Beach and, are you sitting down? He takes HMO's!!! Here's a link to his office :D

This is an old post so I'm not sure if you will see this but I was wondering if you are still happy with him. I called today and he takes my insurance so I think I want to switch. My doc is clueless about celiac, food intolerance and pretty much anything I ask her about. She wants to refer me to 3 different doctors for my various symptoms and she could care less that my blood tests were positive and that the gluten free diet is helping my symptoms tremendously.

I just sent you an email. Another thing about him that I love is that he doesn't refer out unless it's a huge problem :D

I can't wait to see him! Thanks!

I'm in Orange County too, but North County. I see Dr. Savalia in Yorba Linda as my family doctor. The second I mentioned Celiac, she ordered blood tests and referred me to a gastroenterologist (Dr Jemal in Yorba Linda). Admittedly, she didn't put the years of weird symptoms together to come up with celiac, but for most of the time I was an overly stressed law student with a terrible diet... is it any wonder I had headaches and stomach aches and heartburn? I think that describes most students studying for the bar living on beer and pizza.
