      Simply put, Dr Graham saved my life. Enough said.
      in Trenton, MO |
      i had seen 2 gastroenterologists and Dr. Graham was the 2nd colo-rectal surgeon I had seen for my condition which was diagnosed previously as IBSD with idiopathic prutis ani. By luck and the grace of God I ended up at an allergist the next week and was able to be tested for a number of things. I found out that in addition to my environmental allergies, I am also allergic to dairy and gluten. Paleo diet implemented, problem solved. Dr. Laurie Fowler in Columbia is great! Google leaky gut.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
