New looking for Tx recs in Tacoma, WA

Hello, all. I'm looking for a primary physician who works with Crohn's patients in the Tacoma, WA area. I'm also interested in where to get my friend Remicade infusions in the Tacoma, area. So far "Digestive Health Specialists" are the only ones I've come across. Does anyone know about DHS?

Currently he gets treatment in Snohomish County but is looking to move his appointments south since that's where he lives now.

ALSO, what do folks know about insurance covering Remicade treatments? They're so expensive! Is it worth the additional cost to add part D?

Thanks!

Kari

I would not recommend having a serious disease like Crohn's being managed by a primary care physician. You really need a gastroenterologist for Crohn's, especially one with a specialization, or at least an strong interest in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.
