Knowledgable Gi Doctor In Mississauga, Ontario Area?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone who lives in or around the Mississauga, Ontario area knows a good Gastroenterologist who has much experience in celiac disease. I just did my blood tests today and am just waiting for the results. I am worried that they will come back negative and I will be back to square one about what's wrong with me, but I would like to definitely get the stomach biopsy done and I'm thinking that going to a GI doc that has a lot of knowledge about celiac disease would be more willing to do something like that than one who might not know much about celiac yet and who may dismiss my request, therefore wasting my time and energy of getting an appointment with him/her in the first place. Does anyone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance have a GREAT gastroenterologist that they are seeing currently in the Mississauga, Ontario area??

Thanks so much in advance.

I have a guy in Burlington that basically I didn't see until my endoscopy and then I got the results one month later and he said "yup, it's celiac. Gluten free is the only way to go. Not much more I can do for you unless you don't get better". What the HECK? I got a better response from the rheumatologist that I saw as recommended by the neurologist that I saw (lots of specialists in the last year!) and he recommended the bone density scan which my GP already ordered and it was normal. My GI had never ever seen a celiac without stomach symptoms, let alone the crazy neurological symptoms that I had and furthermore, he was not that interested. Not that I am bitter :)

Sorry I am not more help! I think these folks are few and far between! I am lucky that my GP is fabulous and seems to be on it.

Sorry, not much help. My son went to a pediatric GI in Toronto Dr. Kovac and she was awesome. When my husband had his colonoscopy at the Barrie Endoscopy clinic, the docotor was very knowledgable, I thought. If our blood work comes back positive we will be going there for a scope. I don't have the paperwork near me so I don't know what his name is off hand. If you are interested in coming a little north I could find out for you.

adab8ca... yeah, the more i read posts, the more i'm realizing there are a lot of docs not very interested in or educated about celiac disease... now as a GI specialist, isn't is their JOB to know everything they can about their specialty, especially since they get paid very handsomely for what they do?? *sigh*

hockeymomofceliacchild... I might be willing to go up to Barrie, so i wouldn't mind having the name of that doc at the Barrie Endoscopy Clinic... thanx. :o)

Jenny my husband isn't sure where his paperwork is but if you look up Barrie Endoscopy Clinic on Quarry Ridge Road (right next to the Barrie hospital) you could probably get some info. If I find it in the mean time I'll let you know. Good luck with this. :)
