Second opinion
We are thinking about getting a second opinion regarding our little guy but only want to do so by going to the best of the best. Any recommendations of docs or hospitals? We are not confined to any region of the US and were thinking about the Mayo Clinic just because you hear so much about the place but I can't recall hearing anything about pedi GERD there. Has anyone received great treatment somewhere or know of anyone and where they have gone???

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site:
IMHO the two best hospitals for GERD and Motility issues are CHB (Children's Hospital of Boston) and Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Bot are at what they do.

We were seen in Ohio by the GERD GI there and the leading Motilty DR in the nation and they are fabulous!!!

I have dealt with chop (philadelphia) and AI dupont in wilmington de both are good but do some research and what the worst is that these poor children are so common that they sometimes have to suffer for months before an appt. Also ask to be put on a cancellation notice if u go local.

We just returned from the Cincinnati Children's Hospital last week! FANTASTIC. I really can't say enough. They are rated number one in the country for digestive disorders. Not only are they super smart and really know what they are doing, but everything was so child centered! Am going back in 6 months.
Check with your
doctor first!
