My oldest daughter has celiac. Since the diagnosis five years ago we changed her diet to gluten free and have a GI follow up appt once a year. Her GI doc in Boston likes to follow up even though the only thing required to treat celiac is eating gluten free. Her doctor in Boston worked at Mass General and taught at Harvard. Can someone recommend a GI doctor in the Triangle with similar qualifications?

I guess you will need to DM those recommendations

MAtoNC,

I don't have a recommendation for you but I wanted to make a suggestion. Perhaps if you call your former doctor in Boston he can refer you to a colleague he knows in this area. I have found it surprising how small some circles are in the world of medicine and sometimes the best doctors can give the best referrals for their counterparts in other parts of the country. Perhaps you have already inquired about this, but if not, it is definitely worth a shot and at the very least it will be a referral from a doctor you already know and trust. Good luck!

I second NRG's suggestion. I used to work at MGH and the specialists I worked with were more than happy to help. You'd need to get her records anyway. Some of the docs may have trained at MGH. You probably already did this but you can search right on the Duke and UNC hospital website for pedi GI specialists. My last suggestion is to find a local support group and email that person to find out who they use. I would guess most are hooked into a university affiliated physician.

Call a major hospital such as WakeMed, Rex, or Duke for a referral.

I've had celiac since childhood but it subsided a lot at adulthood. Now, I can eat reasonable amounts of gluten without drastic gastric distress.

Plenty of great doctors in this area.

This is exactly why I want a doctor that specializes in celiac... not just any GI doctor

Everything I've read states that any gluten in the diet does harm even if the person does not feel GI distress. I'm hoping to find a doctor that is on top of the latest research.

Those hospitals, especially Duke, should know a superspecialist in celiac.
