Ulcerative Colitis Tips


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

Comments About the Doctor:

Dr Wyatt is extremely patient and she listened to me for a good couple of hours when we first met. She had already gone over all my paperwork, knew my medical background better than I did. She is kind and very straight forward, as you would expect with a military doctor.

The greatest things about her are that she does have a great bedside manner. She held my hand pretty much through all the beginning of this. I was able to get her desk phone number, but found email a better response. She answers promptly, she calls back on the same day that you call and same with email. She easily diagnosed my condition and didn’t just throw it off as something else. She was originally skeptical of me having anything beyond a hemorrhoid or possibly IBS, but the fact is she made sure through a colonoscopy rather than pushing me out the door.

Her treatment method is more here’s the drug, take this and check up later. If you’re looking for more of a companion doctor, maybe not a right fit. She will go over things with you, either during a call or an email, but she’s a fix it doctor rather than taking the time to come up with a game plan.

The office staff is not as helpful as I would like them to be. They do relay messages to the doctors when you need to get a hold of them, but the clinic does a variety of things with different types of doctors, so I can see why they can get confused sometimes.

This doctor has a lot of UC patients. So much so that she actually removed me from her service and gave me to a fellow colleague of hers. I didn’t like this, but I understand that she wants me well and she wanted to give me to someone who could take time to better take care of me and go through my treatment.

I don’t know what type of insurance she takes- I have tricare prime. I don’t know if non-military can access her.
