I have Crohn's disease, and I've seen a LOT of GI docs over the past 12 years, including Dr. Andrew Ippoliti, one of the best in the nation and who now works at Cedars Sinai as one of the directors. I would say my worst experience was in Houston, TX, and my best experience was right here with Dr. Stein. He came highly recommended when I came into the ER with abdominal pains. The typical wait was going to be almost 2 months because he is a very busy and very popular doctor. I now see why. My physician called him to give him details of my case and they were able to squeeze me in for an earlier appointment. When I arrived, he was there promptly at the scheduled time.
Pros: knowledgeable, efficient, friendly
