I'm sure that this questions has been asked and answered before. Do most people see their GI or colorectal surgeon for checkups? I'm having a heck of a time with the GI who took over for my doc who retired. The office was impossible to deal with, so I've relied on my surgeon since 1994. He is going to retire soon. The GI is young and seems apathetic at best about becoming my primary care for IBD and my pouch. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
