GI Dr Willing to Prescribe MTX in Colorado

Hi, I am looking for a GI dr that has experience prescribing methotrexate in Colorado Springs or Denver. I am having a horrible time with my current GI, and he has zero experience with MTX. Any advice would be appreciated!!

you can bring this article abstract to your doctor : http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25157445

I was put on 20mg/week injection and failed. Injections are superior for IBD than pills. I wished I had tried 25mg before it was too late. I think 25mg per week is the maximum for IBD. methotrexate is commonly used by rhuematologists.
