Maybe try Ann Arbor? I know it's a bit of a drive, but if you have an assesment there, maybe they could help with finding a Dr. more local?

I believe there's a Celiac center there?

Thanks but I have already had an assessment and the GI Doctor that I saw contradicted information that I have already researched. I was looking for recommendations on a new GI Doctor.

I was originally diagnosed by Dr. Dahlstedt in Sterling Heights (endoscopy & blood test). I really liked him a lot and he was familiar with Celiac but couldn't answer a lot of questions. It seems there is so much info they don't know. My brother was also diagnosed by him before me. He chose to then see the leading specialist in NY (Dr. Peter Green) and even he couldn't answer questions. They just don't know enough about it yet it seems. Of course he was better than most. I searched around for another doctor that might be a little more knowledgeable closer to me and the name Dr. Thomas J. Alexander in Troy came up. I went to him for my colonoscopy a year after my diagnosis. He seems the best case scenario around the metro Detroit area. He has been diagnosing Celiac for almost 30 years I think. I will go back to him for any follow ups I will need. I wish I could find a gastro doc with Celiac ;)

I also want to add Dr. Alexander was not hesitant for any testing I wanted done and he was very thorough in making sure I had a full blood workup, making sure my numbers were down for transglutaminase, bone density test, etc. And said to make sure I come back every year for bloodwork so that I am 100% where I should be.

I see Dr. Shanti Eswaran. She is a GI out of U of M Hospital in Ann Arbor. Her clinical and research specialty is in gluten intolerances and celiac disease. She's absolutely fantastic. She listens attentively and is very thorough. She is very down-to-earth and easy to talk to, and since she herself has some food intolerances, she is also a great resource as well. After 3 years and four GIs, she was the only one who accurately diagnosed my chronic illness as being food-related. You can message me if you'd like her office number.

I recommend Dr. Lyons. He works out of St. John. He has a main office in Detroit but also goes to Macomb (on Romeo Plank) one day a week. He diagnosed two of my kids and has been thorough about follow up visits and bloodwork to check vitamins and nutrients after diagnosis. So far, no complaints at all. I don't remember the main number, but the number to the Macomb office is 586-868-9030. They could help you get the other number.
