Dr. Bousvaros is extremely knowledgeable about pediatric Crohn's and conducts research in addition to having a clinical practice. We were referred by our pediatrician and got an appointment quickly and were able to schedule a colonoscopy quickly after that (and consequently we had a short path to a Crohn's diagnosis). Because patients are seen Tuesdays in a busy clinic setting he works with a Nurse Practitioner to ensure he can see as many patients as possible.

In our case we had other medical conditions we were managing, and we preferred trying a less aggressive approach than is the current thinking on how to treat kids. He has worked with us in beginning with a milder approach - while continuing to voice his recommendation for a stronger medical approach.
