Dr. Sasson was very good about listening and responding to my questions with patience and care. However, she felt that shecouldn't do anything to diagnose me without a colonoscopy (dangerous, involves general anesthesia). When I suggested a change of diet she seemed to feel it was a waste of time, but allowed me to try a diet (FODMAP) I had read about and she was aware of, though she had no instructions or even guidelines for the diet, so I googled it. The diet worked well, so I canceled my follow up with Dr. Sasson. Personally, I prefer to try natural methods before undergoing surgical procedures, or new medications, so I've sought out a new Gastroenterologist who takes that approach.

After explaining why I was there, etc., she stated that she thought it best if I got a doctor in MY location! I never realized geography mattered to doctors and was quite stunned. Due to the fact that I was feelingso lousy did I not respond in my normal inquisitive manner. Again I was totally stunned. She did give me a 30 day prescription in the interim until I could locate a doctor in MY AREA!!!!!!!! Seriously.
