My Support Groups:
Pros: Takes time to explain risks associated with medications, and why one medicine should be used over another.
Looks at whole patience care and well being not just IBD related issues.
Honest doctor who personally cares for her patients & their parents. Tries to have kids active in their dialog of their symptoms, problems, and care.

Cons: Not prompt, but normally within a half hour of appointment.
Schedule always full, and hard to get an appointment unless there is a major issue or you wait 3-4 months.
Takes many vacations on children's school breaks, which can be problematic for scheduling.

Our case has been a difficult one to treat. She has been honest with us when she doesn't know an answer to a question & with success/failure rates of other children on various medications. On answers to questions she doesn't know she invests the time to learn more & share a new study or information.
