"Like many UCers I have spent many hours trawling the internet googling the condition and came across your website a few years ago. I read your ebook and really liked your honesty and humour. As everyone says your positivity is so encouraging and now this is my go to website when I'm thinking about UC. Thankfully my symptoms are pretty much under control at the moment but just wanted to say thanks." Kate

Comments About the Doctor:

Dr. Behm is an excellent doctor. Although he is busy, he always makes time to listen to his patients (when I called with a concern, I talked to Dr. Behm himself for 15 minutes about it instead of playing phone tag with a nurse). The nurse he works with is also very attentive and volunteers her time to facilitate the local Crohn’s/Colitis support group. Not only does Dr. Behm hear my issues, he takes my feelings into consideration and partners with me in creating a treatment plan. For example, I haven’t found Imuran helpful– most doctors seem to scold me for refusing to take it (I was on it for 7 years) but Dr. Behm seemed to understand my concerns and was willing to work with me as I pursued alternative methods.

    Dr Behm and his staff are wonderful. They are always willing to answer my questions and listen to my concerns. Dr Behm takes times himself to assist me; he never puts me off and I love his nurse she is also always concerned and compassionate.
