Can anyone recommend a good Kaiser gastroenterologist? My longtime doctor is no longer with Kaiser, so I need to find someone ASAP to oversee treatment for my Crohn’s disease.
I’m looking for someone who works collaboratively with patients, who will listen to my experience and observations, and is able to think outside the box (rather than just defaulting to a stock treatment plan).
I’m in Oakland, but willing to travel anywhere in the Bay Area for the right fit.
(And if there are any Kaiser GI docs who you’ve had negative experiences with, I would appreciate hearing about those too, so I know who to avoid!)
Thank you for any suggestions!Nov 28, 2021

I'm in need of a referral to a Kaiser Gastroenterologist at Alameda or Oakland (ideally) who
a) Has a good bedside manner
b) Is open to and/or knowledgeable about alternative therapies and treatments (e.g. plant-based antibiotics in place of pharmaceutical ones, when appropriate)
c) Knows about and can treat S.I.B.O
d) Is a woman
Thank you!Apr 26, 2021

I have SIBO. I also have Kaiser, which from what I understand, is not a good combo to have. (Hopefully someone can prove, from personal experience, that my statement is false.)
I'm seeking referrals for gastroenterologists at Kaiser (Oakland is ideal, but will travel) who are 1) knowledgeable about and will treat SIBO, constipation predominant and (ideally) 2) are on the holistic/naturopathic end of the medicine scale (i.e. knowledgeable about and open to herbal antibiotics in place of or in combination with traditional, drug antibiotics for treatment).
If you know of anyone, please let me know. If you also care to share your story/journey with SIBO, I'd welcome that, too!
Many thanks.Sep 17, 2019
