Mayo Clinic Experience?

I'm considering a trip to one of the Mayo Clinic locations. I'm curious if people have found it to be beneficial for them. I have a feeling that the treatment options that doctors at the Mayo Clinic would suggest are going to be the exact same as any doctor in my area would tell me about.
Dx: Moderate-severe Ulcerative Colitis - June 2013

Current: Prednisone 40mg
Tried: Asacol, Lialda, Uceris, Prednisone, VSL#3, LDN, Hydrocortisone enemas, Canasa, L-Glutamine.

Horrible. I went there last January. They said the same crap my local doc says. If I could do it over again I'd go to the Cleveland Clinic. They have a functional medicine wing that I'd go to.

I heard the same thing...Mayo is not what it used to be. Sad, because they used to really break out of the box and get things done there that weren't being addressed elsewhere.
