One of the 15,000 ulcerative colitis folks using the site adds:
"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

In short I can state that this doctor saved me when I was in a miserable flare. I could not get my prior GI doctor to see me. I happened upon this doctor thru a referral from his colleague. He is ranked Boston Magazine top doc in his field. Siegenberg saw me, put me on Prednisone for a few weeks before colonoscopy. I was on Asacol which he determined that was the wrong med. I have left-sided UC and he immediately put me on Balsalazide Disodium (Colazal) and Canasa. I was put in remission in a few months. He doesn't discuss diet, he leaves that to individual. Just had a 6 month check-up and he stated that I could start cutting down the number of pills I take (which was 9 per day - 3 at 3 times a day). I'm down to 8 a day and still in remission. He doesn't want to have people on more pills than they need. I might consider getting down to 7 maybe a goal of 5(!).

I can't say enough about this doc and his staff which are courteous and helpful. I'm concerned as to when I move to Vermont that I have to leave him. I'll know when I see him in June 2014 (for my year check-up point).
