"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

Dr. Clements was who diagnosed me with UC. I had been having issues for some time, but once I let my Primary Care doc know that her plan didn't work, he was able to fit me in within about 10 days. I talked to his nurse first, who assured me that I had diverticulitis. Dr. Clements came in, and within about 3 minutes of hearing my story told me I had UC. He told me that he would do a colonoscopy to diagnose me formally, but that UC was what I had. I asked if stress or diet played a part in it, and he said not at all and that the material he would give me would explain everything. He gave me a pamphlet about UC, and a $400 prescription for Canasa and sent me on my way. His assistant scheduled me for a colonoscopy 2 weeks from that day, and told me the Canasa would be expensive but that they were out of coupons and samples.

By the time my colonoscopy came around, I was super sick and was running a 102 fever, plus my heart rate was 140 bpm. I did not see Dr. Clements until I was in the room and about to go under, which wasn't a big deal. He came in quickly once I was awake and told my husband and I that my colon "was very angry" and gave me a prescription for flagyl, cipro, and prednsione. I asked if I would gain weight from those and he said I wouldn't if I watched what I ate (I had lost 20 lbs in 3 weeks). 2 weeks later, without reaching out to see how I was doing, he called in a prescription for Asacol for me (that would cost 400 out of pocket). I found out when the pharmacy called me to tell me it was ready. At that point I decided I needed a doctor that was more participatory in my care.
