Glad I Asked February 22, 2008Posted 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.
