Gastroenterologists who Specialize in Celiac Disease

Melinda Dennis MS, RDN, LDN
Q: Is there a state by state register that lists gastroenterologists who specialize in celiac disease?

Answer


A few of the national support/advocacy groups and organizations maintain links to listings of clinicians specializing in gluten-related disorders.

Beyond Celiac. Find a Doctor.
Beyond Celiac partners with Amino and uses their doctor-finder functionality:
https://www.beyondceliac.org/celiac-disease-find-doctor/

Celiac Disease Foundation Healthcare Practitioner Directory
https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/resources/provider-directory/

The Gluten Intolerance Group recommends that patients contact gastroenterologists and ask questions that will help assess the comfort level with the physician, do online reviews of the physician, and ask others in their gluten-free network who they recommend.

I suggest that individuals contact their local celiac support group and ask for the contact information of the nearest medical celiac center or for local specializing clinicians they recommend. And then do your research based on your own unique needs and preferences.

These listings of health care practitioners are provided for convenience only, and are not an endorsement of the practitioners, and NCA, Delete the Wheat, and Melinda Dennis do not endorse the websites or their lists of practitioners, nor any of the practitioners on the lists.  Rather, the information is provided as a public service.  Each individual should do their own diligence and select a practitioner who best suits their needs based on that diligence.
