Help Finding Doctor In Alabama (Hunts/birm)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone first off thank God for this site and forum. My problems all started about 3.5 months ago and its been a nightmare of course. Was pushed off by several practitions and even a few ER trips as acid reflux. Anyways my new family doctor did some test a week ago and seems to really think its Celiac. Wants me to go to a specialist so I'm hoping to find who is celiac savy. I live about 30 minutes south of Huntsville and about an hour from Birmingham. I really dont have a preference just need HELP! I have already swapped to gluten-free diet still having problems but of course everytime I turn around I find something else that is gluten like toothpaste/mouthwash. So I'm researching like crazy and working real hard on getting gluten-free. Of course in my small town about the only thing I can find is the gluten-free chex cereals and the rice milk stuff but odly enough those seem the best for me now. I made a trip to huntsville and grabbed several gluten-free products but some have not done to well for me, but just trying one new every other day or so...

Docs has had me on sucralfate, nexium, and dicyclomine.... I go back tomorrow for a check up so i really hope to find a suggestion for a Celiac savy specialist....thanks so much for all the help

I haven't seen these doctors, but I have heard that they are good for celiac. They are at St. Vincent's in Birmingham. http://www.alabamagi.com

I think they are all ok.

BTW, do NOT go to St. Vincent's East.

I hope this help :)

I live in Birmingham and didn't have much luck with a doctor here but I have been seeing Dr. Cynthia Rudert in Atlanta and really like her. Good luck, I think it is hit and miss with most doctors.

No, I didn't try these. I saw two different ones at two other hospitals. It want hurt to make an appointment and see how it goes.

Not necessarily in alabama,,, but... Did you try phoning Dr Block for a consultation in Tulsa, Oklahoma? He's very experienced with celiac disease and the gluten free diet...
