Welcome To The One Great Gut Network
Personalized medicine. Everyone deserves the best care available, without limitations.

The One Great Gut Network is a worldwide compilation of Doctors and health practitioners who have made a meaningful difference in the physical and mental health of those with IBD, Crohn’s and Colitis.

Many have IBD themselves, living with this 24/7/365.

Why should you care about the One Great Gut Network?
Because we said so! And because this is the best thing we’ve thought of since using toilet paper in the over position. Sorry bottom or under people, give over and top  a try for one week and you’ll also belief. You’re Welcome.

We are considering creating this for you. Would you like that? Let us know!

Can I submit a review for a provider I have directly worked with?
Yes, please! We want to know the good and the, um, not so good, from patients and providers. We are hoping this will up-level compassionate care, improve patient outcomes and “doctor-patient” relationships

Will you include businesses of those with IBD Crohn’s Colitis that are not health practitioners?

Note:
As with any service, conduct your due diligence and keep in mind that everyone has a bad day and one person experience may not be yours. The hidden truth is that suicide rates by Doctors rank among one of the highest professions. I believe most, if not all went into medicine to truly help and are just as frustrated, if not more so, than us patients.

Ask your community and friends for a recommendation. Check places like the Better Business Bureau(BBB), social media reviews on places like Google Business, Facebook, Yelp and Doctor review sites like RateMDs, Vitals, Health Grades and WebMD.  Unfortunately none of those websites are 100% reliable. Studies show that online reviews are sometimes authentic, sometimes fake, and sometimes influenced and biased.  RateMD Doctors can pay to have a limited number of comments hidden and also boost themselves on the page. Yelp has been accused of filtering algorithms filtering reviews and extortion of businesses.

Also, check The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Open Payments data on ProPublica Dollars for Docs.

Pharmaceutical and medical device companies are now required by law to release details of their payments to a variety of doctors and U.S. teaching hospitals for promotional talks, research and consulting, among other categories.

Use this tool to search for general payments (excluding research and ownership interests) made from August 2013 to December 2015. Also read the article: Now There’s Proof: Docs Who Get Company Cash Tend to Prescribe More Brand-Name Meds. 

On May 28, 2019 ProPublica told me that they do plan on updating Dollars for Docs, which relies on data from CMS.gov – the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. They believe CMS is still keeping track of this valuable information and should have their database updated later this year.
