I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Seabrook! I was first diagnosed after having surgery in Raleigh, NC. As a student in Columbia, SC, I was worried about finding a doctor without referrals from trusted friends and family. A classmate's father practices with Dr. Seabrook and was able to get me an appointment, for which I am eternally grateful.

Dr. Seabrook is entirely willing to take things at a pace comfortable to me, whether that means taking a wait-and-see approach or aggressively tackling my symptoms. He's also exceptionally honest with me about my prognosis and his medical opinion, which is a trait I value highly. I prefer to know the truth, rather than having a doctor beat around the bush to try and sugarcoat things and pocket more money.

Furthermore, Dr. Seabrook is quite obviously knowledgeable about Crohn's disease, as reflected by his many academic and professional accolades. More importantly, Dr. Seabrook is exceptionally personable and makes me feel comfortable with this strange new disease.

Because he practices as part of a gastroenterology-specialist group, Dr. Seabrook is very accessible. I have called his offices many, many times and always receive a call back from his nurse within just a few hours. In addition, I have utilized the "emergency after-hours" line for the practice and was pleased with the results. Within an hour of leaving a voicemail, one of Dr. Seabrook's colleagues returned my call and helped me decide which course of action to take. The following day, I received a call from Seabrook's nurse, as both she and the doctor wanted to ensure everything was okay.

Overall, Dr. Seabrook is a wonderful doctor and, more importantly, a wonderful person. If anyone I knew needed a GI referral, I would urge them to contact Seabrook or his colleagues.
