"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:

Poor bedside manner – He keeps repeating himself even after I ask different questions. He doesn’t offer alternative methods. I told him I was sensitive to medications that usually half the dose works. He refused to listen or make suggestions. I told him the pains I have with my foot (other problem) and migraines that the only thing that works is Ibuprofen. He said to see that doctor for that problem, instead of helping to find a pain/antinflammatory that works for me. He keeps wanting me to make an appt. only to tell me what he already did on the phone – cost more IMO. The office staff is very helpful and tries to work with me. I think he should be treating the whole person and not just the UC. He should be trying to save the patient $$$ not getting them to spend more!
