There are several support groups in Alabama that may help you find a doctor. I live in Huntsville and we have a support group. Let us know where you live. It will also make a difference on your testing if you are already gluten free.

I haven't gone yet, but will be seeing Alberas in Dothan at Digestive Specialists in Dothan next week. I will let you know how it goes. You'll likely have to go to your pcp and get a referral. They could perform the blood tests and then send you to the GI as well. That's what mine did. HTH!
