Question: I’ve already seen a Doctor for my IBS .…why The Tummy Clinic?
What makes us different in IBS care?
We won’t take food away from you forever. Our long-term goal is to make sure that you get to eat the foods you love without feeling restricted. We want to identify your food triggers and develop an individualized plan to manage your IBS symptoms.
We work with gastroenterologists and family doctors to optimize treatment. Our greatest compliment is the many referrals made by physicians and other allied health professions (Naturopathic Doctors, Chiropractors, Dietitians, Psychologists, Psychotherapists) for their IBS patients. We work with our founding gastroenterologists to ensure that we are up to date on the latest evidence based approaches to IBS care. Our entire team is dedicated to IBS care and IBS care only. Every member has gut – directed training. Some of us even have IBS ourselves. We work as a team—-Our team consists of Naturopathic Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, Dietitians, and therapists all with a focus on IBS and with the oversight of our founding gastroenterologists. We only treat IBS at The Tummy Clinic.
