A mom recently asked for recommendations for pediatric gastroenterologists (GIs), here are the ones the moms suggested:

Dr. Linda Lazar

Memphis Pediatric Gastroenterology & Hepatology, P.C.

Dr. Whitworth with Methodist Le Bonheur. We were very happy with him

Dr. Whitworth was great with our son Dr Whitworth is great! We started with Whittington, but he came across as rude and condescending. Whitworth was super nice. We had to get an endoscopy and colonoscopy on our then 2 month old. We needed great bedside manner because we were wrecks.

Dr. John Eshun

Dr. Eshun was wonderful with my daughter when she was so sick from GERD. And I had gone to another doctor before him who was NOT

Dr. Eshun is the best!

We were very happy with Dr. Eshun! We tried an East Memphis doc first who wanted all sorts of intrusive tests without much of an exam and very few questions (failed!) Second opinion, Dr. Eshun took care of the problem during one visit -no testing, just “try this first” an OTC natural supplement and even called back to check on our daughter. It has been 2 1/2 yrs and his recommendation for her still works!

Dr. Samuel Nurko at Children’s Hospital in Boston

Heading up there was the best thing I ever did! We were unable to get answers locally.
