K-Pouch Gastroenterologists in Los Angeles

Hi guys, it's been a while since I've been on the site. My girl has moved out to Los Angeles and needs to find a G.I. and surgeon. I see postings for a surgeon in L.A.- Dr. Robert Beart, but no G.I. listed. 

Any comments on this doctor, and do you all still see a G.I. once a year to get scoped or does your surgeon do this? Do you all have yearly check ups? Does anyone have any other doctors they can suggest? So many questions. Art Mom.

Dr. Beart did my J pouch surgery at Mayo Clinic in 1983 and I highly recommend him.  I do not know how active his practice is or if he has retired.  He could recommend a gastroenterologist for your daughter.  Since I have FAP, I get a scope exam annually by my GI.  The person’s diagnosis usually dictates the frequency of scope exams.  Another excellent surgeon in LA is Dr. Don Schiller, but his specialty is the BCIR.
