Just recently moved to New Jersey. Anyone know of a good specialist in the area? Already asked my previous doctor, but she doesn’t know anyone here. Thanks!

Although the Foundation is not able to recommend one specific physician or treatment center, we can direct you to some resources which will help you identify some doctors and centers.
 
In our “Finding a Specialist or Treatment Center” fact sheet we provide:

  • A list of important questions to ask to help you find the right specialist for your son’s  case
  • A listing of websites to locate specialists
  • Information on how to choose a treatment facility
  • Information on how to communicate with your doctor to make sure you get the most out of your visit and your healthcare.
 
You can access the fact sheet by visiting: http://www.crohnscolitisfoundation.org/assets/pdfs/Finding-a-Specialist.pdf . You may also log onto our website to search our list of physician members at http://www.crohnscolitisfoundation.org/living-with-crohns-colitis/find-a-doctor/
