My primary care office was to refer me to a gastro specialist - but left it to me to suggest one. I researched every specialist listed in my HMO directory and selected Dr. Frenkiel, even though his office was not very conveniently located for me. This turned out to be an excellent choice in terms of his reasonable testing, careful diagnosis, and thoughtful treatment recommendations.
