Looking for a new doctor

Posted , 2 users are following.

I am a 20 year Achalasia survivor looking for a new doctor. I live in southern California where I had the great benefit of the University of Southern California physician, Dr Dimeester. unfortunately, the doctor is now retired and I am 16 years post-op with reoccurance of my symptoms. Can anyone recommend a new clinician?

    Dr DeMeester has been an excellent doctor, and I am sure you appreciated your good fortune in being treated by him. As I understand it, the residual expertise in his old department is very high, so I would be inclined t seek an appointment with his successor or one of the team there.

    Recurrence of symptoms does happen and it does sound like you need to be reassessed.

    All best wishes
