Customer Question

Hi. I have had a bowel resection due to Crohn's and have been taking Questran (or the generic) and Pentasa. They have benefitted me well. I've moved to a new city (Depew, NY) to a job which has benefits with co-pay now.
I need a prescription but struggle finding a doctor in the area to help me.
Any recommendations to help me in this?
Thanks.

Hello!

I agree that you need to get established with a doctor in your area...

A primary care doctor may be faster to get in and would probably be willing to give you Rx for your maintenance medications...

It would be of course needed with your condition to ALSO get established with a gastroenterologist...

I would suggest that you go to the site >>>www.healthgrades.com >>From here I would say that you may enter the type specialist that you wish to find and then enter your ZIP CODE this should help to aid your search of the doctors closest to you and then you may proceed from there..

Availability and insurance details you could get by calling and asking as you have been doing..

I hope that this is helpful in your search..

Let me know if I may be of further help.

Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD
