Physician-to-Physician ConsultIf your patient has an acute flare-up and needs an urgent appointment, or you just want a second opinion, we provide direct-access scheduling to meet your needs. Call 614-293-4444 to speak with a nurse triage specialist who can route you to one of our physicians.
Nutrition plays such a significant role in the lives of IBD patients.That’s why we offer a free, 1-hour education session for patients with Crohn’s Disease (CD) or Ulcerative Colitis (UC) to help with improving overall nutritional status. This is a dietitian-led, interactive class focusing on the most current information to promote gut health. There is conflicting dietary information in the media as it relates to nutrition and CD/UC. This class dispels myths while promoting a nutritionally balanced diet.
