    Wow! What a great resource! I was able to find a doc that takes my insurance within about 5 minutes after reading this post. I have struggled with many digestive issues over the years and lost my faith in GI docs. I’ve been on the hunt to find a doctor that recognizing the absolute importance of diet when it comes to gut health and one that is also educated on things like candida, SIBO, food allergies etc. Such a relief to finally find a doc who meets this criteria and takes my insurance. Thanks for putting this together Joel!
