Glad I Asked February 22, 2008

Posted by glutenfreedance in Celiac Disease, Doctors.

When we decided to leave our old pediatrician last year after several unresolved issues with their really-super-awful-rude office staff we thought it would be a good idea to question any potential docs about CD.  Here’s my visit on Tuesday which I took my 2nd to.

Me:  Do you have any experience with Celiac Disease?

(very aged) Doc:  In all my years as a pediatrician I have only seen one case of Celiac Disease.  While I do think it’s under diagnosed, I think it is extremely rare.

Keep in mind that during this conversation I am standing next to my child with a birth defect that at 1 in 2,500 is considered only somewhat rare.  I think we’ll keep looking.
