Does your doctor read the scientific literature for IBD?

There is a high probability that your doctor does not read the scientific literature.

And they most likely wish they had time to do so. Many physicians see between 20-40 patients per day – working long hours and spending the rest of their time charting, and working with their electronic medical record.

Want them to find creative solutions to your conditions or get to the foundations of your problems? Sorry – that’s just not really possible in the current model. Our healthcare system has become “reactive,” and the easiest options are to find quickly targeted interventions that vary widely when put into practice.

What’s the answer?

Get educated. Get going. Get Woke.

Take an active role in your health and do what your health system can’t.
