I had a friend ask Dr Askin if he knew anthing about leaky gut as I felt after reading many articles that I had all the symptoms. It can lead to Hashimotos of the thyroid and I indeed got that and even cancer of the thyroid. Once I got to his office he spent the entire time typing my paperwork into his computer. He ignored my questions on leaky gut and even said there was no way to test bacteria in my gut, which i now know to be completely untrue. What he did do is pick up on polyp history in my family and try to get me to do a colonoscopy at his surgery center. I refuse to give him any business and have since gone to a hematologist who found autoimmune disorder due to bacteria in my gut. Apparently there is a test. He is sending me to a gastroenterologist. I only hope they now take this seriously unlike Dr. Askin. what a waste of my time and $50 copay. He lied to my friend that he addressed leaky gut just to get another patient in the door to sell them on a colonoscopy,
