I could understand your concern. I am sorry your aunt is going through a difficult time. For gastrointestinal issues, a gastroenterologist is the right specialist. You may have taken her to the wrong gastroenterologist. To find a new gastroenterologist, first talk to family and friends. Another option in finding a gastroenterologist is the physician finder on the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) website. Here is a link from AGA website which will allow you to search for gastroenterologists in your area: https://secure.gastro.org/GILocator/locator.asp
Also, make a list of your aunt’s symptoms, with as much detail as possible, such as time of day the pain is worst and what activities intensify the pain. Also, bring a list of tests your aunt previously underwent – this will help your new gastroenterologist.
I hope your aunt finds the treatment that will help with her pain.
