Mine was a jerk. He did do a lot of biospies but had no real knowledge of Celiac and was a jerk. I'll Pm you his name. I have heard that Randy Brown or Dr. Buser are good GIs

If you need a Pediatric doctor, my friends daughter goes to Julia Bracken at the Celiac clinic at Children's Mercy.

KU Med have specialists. I wonder if they would have celiac doc. I went to a great GI doc too but he didn't have much to offer me in advice with my celiac when I went for my follow-up after being diagnosed in biopsy. His only suggestion was taking Allign for my gut...some follow up. I should've saved my $25 copay for my Primary care Physician which he referred me to for all of my other problems and pains.

I live in the KC area and was diagnosed with Celiac a few weeks ago. The GI I saw gave me only 10 mins of his time with this diagnosis and all of my problems (anemia, osteopenia, etc...). I left feeling thankful that I have been educating myself because he didn't have much to say. I had to specifically ask whether I needed follow-ups, bloodwork to track iron and such. Have you all been to Dr. Brown or Buser (as recommended above) yet? If so, would you recommend either? Also, since I have Hashimoto's and now Celiac, I think I might need to see a rheumatologist see what else might lurking! Any recommendations?

I actually know Randy Brown as our kids were friends. My husband goes to him but I think it would be a little wierd to go to him. I have been told Dr Buser is good, too. I don't have any reason to see a GI right now. My family doc runs my follow-up blood tests and they have been fine. There is no reason for me to have another endo because I don't have any real issues. I doubt any of them would sit and give you good diet & coping info. Your family doc can do blood tests for vitamins, etc.
