We have an appointment at the end of the month at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. I’m not sure which doctor yet. I’m interested to hear about other people’s experiences there. Particularly because my son is not having any trouble gaining weight I’m wondering if they will take me seriously and what the chances are that they will consider a higher Prevacid dose – currently, he’s taking 1/2 of a 15 mg solutab 2x a day.
You are close enough that if you don’t get the answers you wnat at Cincinatti you can go to Columbus. the hcildrne’s hosp. there is Nationwide Childrne’s hopsital. This is on eo fth eLEADING hosptials for ped. GI issues!!!!!!!! Take advantage of living close by, I would.
We are in VA and we traveld to Columbus to see Dr. Moussa dn Dr. Di
Lorenzo. They are AWESOME. He is one of the leading Dr (Dr Dr L.) Fro children with motility isses of the GI tract. Dr M works with all their reflux testing.
Like I said, we were there for a week for EXTENSIVE GI testing and they are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
What places in the US have people heard is especially good for complicated pedi GI issues? I am willing to travel at this point, to try to get relief for my son. Children’s Hospital in Columbus listed here … others?
There are as many different types of pediatricians as there are specialties. A (far from definitive) list: there are specialists in adolescent medicine, pediatric cardiology, pediatric nephrology, pediatric GI, pediatric ER, neonatal (NICU) specialists, pediatric intensivists (PICU), pediatric ophthalmologists, pediatric ENTs, pediatric hematologists and oncologists, pediatric surgeons, pediatric psychiatrists, pediatric endocrinologists, pediatric dermatologists, and of course, the best of them all, pediatric neurologists. *G*
