Those of you going to CHOP
for those of you taking your children to CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philly). Do you have a GI that you can reccommend? We are currently seeing one out of the satelitte office in Chalfont but I am not a huge fan of him and would like to get another opinion. my dd is about 4 months old and we have been dealing with bottle refusal issues for the past 2 months.

Hi...We see Dr. Liacouras in the Exton office. I have mixed feelings about him. He definitely lacks in the bedside manner department - BIG TIME. However, there is no one else I would rather have in the OR with my son. And, he is an expert in the field of my son's diagnosis, EE. I have gotten past his personality and curt mannerisms but it definitely took a while. I have heard good things about Dr. Verma - from both a knowledge and personality point of view. We have also seen Beth Goldberg, the nurse practicioner with Dr. Liacouras and she is wonderful. I have nothing but praise for her. We use her for our daughter, who only has reflux. Good luck! Do you mind me asking - who are you currently seeing? -Patti

Pictured: G'mom w/3 kids. I'm mom to 1 angel Melissa (dec'd 11/92 - hypoplastic left-heart syn.)
2 healthy daughters (knock wood) Cory (16), Kim (11) & Eric (4) diagnosed with e.e. (scoped 8/08), GERD & severe food/seasonal allergies, asthma. Cried non-stop first 17 mths. of life Found out he is allergic to cow's milk, soy, eggs, and peanuts. Takes Prevacid, Neocate One Plus & Flovent.
We go there & on a personal level I like Eric's GI Dr. (Dr. Shredharen) but he didn't pick up that his milk allergy had everything to do with what was going on in the reflux dept. Also, recently he blew me off when I complained about Eric's choking, etc. (at my insistence he did a scope, where we found he has e.e.). So, I guess I can't really recommend him either. We had a woman GI perform his scope & I really liked her off the bat. I'll post her name if I can dig it up. Ellen
