I am passing on Dr Jeffrey Phillips’ recommendation for Ped GI Dr Barbara Kirschner at the University of Chicago. She is quite well informed, is now familiar with Zegerid and is willing to treat infant reflux aggressively.
If you have experience with Dr Kirschner, either good or bad, please post your comments.February 8, 2006 at 5:50 pm #1180

I just found a great site. It’s from the association that many ped GIs register with (NaSPGHAN). It has lots of info about GERD and other GI conditions, but also has a doctor finder service. You type in your city in North America, and all the ped gi’s registered will come up. Unfortunately, you don’t know anything about them, and the contact info is not always there, but it’s good if you need to doctor shop.
Here’s the link: http://www.naspghan.org . Go down to for the public (if I remember correctly), then select doctor finder.February 20, 2006 at 4:47 pm #2002February 25, 2006 at 1:32 pm #2472AnonymousInactive

Acknowledged Reflux, but downplayed it….called him a “fussy infant.” Difficult to talk to, disregarded questions (especially related to testing), made some ridiculous recommendations, would not give Neocate prescription

Orlando Florida & Tampa Florida
Nemours Clinic http://www.nemours.org
GI- Dr. Bornstein
Pulmonology- Dr. Sabogal
Both of these doctors are great but I can’t say enough about our pulmonologist!!!!!!! He is wonderful and was the biggest help of ALL of the many doctors we saw.
TAMPA who NOT to see, followed by whom TO see!!
laura, Moderator here, adding this- the following is from page seven (7)
and posted by jilly78
If you are in Florida, please beware of Pediatric Gastro in Temple
Terrace, Tampa. I saw Dr. Ignacio but spoke mostly to a student that is
studying there. It is very close to a college campus and students do
most of the legwork. It is very frustrating to speak solely to students
and then get 5 minutes with the GI doctor. Also, if you call them, the
student calls you back! It is also impossible to get a marci-kids dose. Beware! Travel anywhere else but here…
Tampa– this is also from jilly78, from page nine (9)
For those in the Tampa Bay area, I know how hard it is to find a GI that is decent:Try Pediatric Gastroenterology & Nutrition of Tampa Bay (Dr Arasu, Williams and Cuenca)P-(813) 870 4438F-(813) 870 4153Dr. Arasu is very nice and that is who we saw- you have to push a little esp with meds, but he listensEveryone likes Dr. Williams and he is VERY VERY hard to get in to see. I never got to see him, you can try though.Dr. Cuenca is also always booked up.
Tampa– this is fom erintx on page nine (9)
Dr. Michael Wilsey in Tampa/St. Pete is great. He took a long time to
listen to our concerns & was proactive w/o being too aggressive.He doesn’t do marci-kids dosing though. We went through our general ped for that.

It’s been a while, so I’ll re-add ours…
Dr. Brown @ Medical City Children’s in Dallas
(his partners are wonderful too, from personal experience, Dr. An is great & a friend uses Dr. Argao & they really like him too!)April 12, 2006 at 5:34 am #5967AnonymousInactiveVIRGINIA: Hampton Roads area in VAHighly recommend Newport News Pediatrics if you move to the hampton roads area in VA. Dr. Maria Chen, Dr. Bolduc, Dr.Galloway and Nurse Shockey are the practitioners. My 2 kids have seen all of them even though Dr. Chen is our ped and i have not been let down by any of them in their work ups or follow through. For 3 yrs now. oh yeah and their office staff is wonderful. follow through and courtesy are always there.
Dr. Gregory Kobak, part of CHKD gastroenterology is also good about being aggressive yet reasonable. Even when i questioned him on why this test and not that he didn’t flinch and proceeded to gather pieces to my son’s reflux puzzle.
Allergist: Dr. Maripaz Morales also part of CHKD in hampton roads. Diligent and consistently plugs away at getting to the root of symptoms. Also has not let us down with treatment and follow through.

Does anyone have any information about Dr. Jack An DHAT, Dallas, TX?
Thank you!May 9, 2006 at 11:08 pm #7785AnonymousInactive
Dont know how i have never posted on this topic…
We use Dr Eric Argao at Medical City Dallas hospital, he is great with treating reflux. We also have had personal expirience with Dr An and Dr Brown (when Samantha was in the hospital they were on call) and they were great.
BTW~if your child needs to be admitted to the hospital (hopefully not needed) Medical City is fantastic! I have nothing but good things to say about them.May 11, 2006 at 2:57 pm #7886AnonymousInactive
Well, we saw Dr. An today and he was very nice. Brycen is going to have a procedure on Wednesday of next week to see what is going on. Another scope…but it will be worth it if we can figure out what the meds aren’t working. So far so good…I will know more after next week as far as Dr. An’s treatment and how well we like him. So far I am very impressed.June 9, 2006 at 11:00 am #9430AnonymousInactiveMISSOURIKansas city, MO ~ Sara Hasl*g, nurse practitioner @ the GI clinic at Childrens Mercy Hospital downtown.

I have to tell you that when my daughter was 8 wks. old, we saw a ped. GI and I was not happy (and that was at Children’s Hospital in Akron). My daughter also has asthma and it has been out of control. So at the suggestion of the pharamisist (sp?) we went and saw apediatric pulmonary specialist (Dr. Kraynack). He was the one to suggest that she get a Chalasia Scan, which is a barium test that shows if she had reflux. And guess what? She did and the ped. GI said she does not have acid reflux. Our pediatric pulmonary specialist is WONDERFUL and we are seen more improvement than what we saw after she saw the allergist. He is in Hudson and at Children’s Hospital in Akron.
