Probably because no one has thought about listing him, since he hasn't actually "treated" any of our members, althought many have consulted with him by phone or e-mail, as a followup after receiving test results from his lab.

Actually, this "forum" was originally created as sort of a "tongue-in-cheek" commentary on the fact that up until rather recently, virtually none of us were receiving any help from our doctors, and especially our GI docs, as far as MC was concerned. Back then, all but a handful of doctors insisted that diet had nothing to do with MC, and the treatments that many of them recommended often made things worse, rather than better, (such as recommending increased fiber intake, since many of them considered MC and IBS to be very similar, or even the same condition). In fact, back in those days, it was sort of a running joke here, that the difference between IBS and MC was a biopsy. Back then, doctors very, very, rarely took biopsies. That's why they have always considered MC to be a rare disease. You can't detect MC without a biopsy, and GI docs almost never took biopsies, because MC was listed as a rare disease. It was a "Catch-22" situation, guaranteed to perpetuate a tradition of poor diagnostic performance.

These days, of course, the situation is definitely changing, as doctors slowly learn about MC, thanks to the efforts of pioneers such as Dr. Fine. Many "old-school" docs still refuse to accept his findings, however, and insist that stool tests are "worthless". It may take another generation of GI docs, before the medical schools get up to speed on MC, so that a good working knowledge of diagnosing and treating MC is standard operating procedure among GI docs.

Yes, Dr. Fine most certainly qualifies to be listed as a doctor who is very helpful in treating MC. Did you know that he has MC himself? The lack of available information on the disease is what originally motivated him to pursue a career in researching the disease.

Thanks for raising this point.

More...

Dr. Kay L. Lee, M.D. of Houston (see above information) has recently been elected Family Doctor of the Year for the year 2008, for Harris County. She will be the nominee for Doctor of the Year for the Entire State of Texas for the year 2009.

Dr. Lee serves in the medical advisory board of one of the best, and perhaps largest celiac support groups in the USA. She also studies extensively conditions such as ours, and has an excellent working/practical knowledge of the GF diet as well as other common food sensitivities.

In recent years, Dr. Lee has attended a number of professional conferences with national and international leaders in the field of celiac and related diseases, and has a good understanding of the greater spectrum of gluten sensitivity, in addition to the more classical diagnosis of celiac disease by biopsy-proven endoscopy (flat villi, in other words). She also works for a greater understanding of the latter among her peers.

This year alone, Dr. Lee attended the national meeting of the G.I.G. (gluten intolerance group) as well as the national meeting of the national organization for GI docs for the whole USA. At both of these meetings, she was able to update her knowledge from numerous national leaders in the field of celiac and related conditions, and in some cases, have direct interaction with them.

Dr. Lee is also interested in the nutritional status of her patients who have these conditions, given the tendency to malabsorb a number of vital nutrients.

I think you will like her!
