GFRB Health Network Welcomes Duke Gastroenterology of Raleigh

I have been working on bringing some Gastroenterologists familiar with Celiac Disease into the Gluten Free Raleigh Blog (GFRB) Health Network for the past several weeks. Most of those with Celiac Disease are diagnosed by GI doctors or are under their care at some point. It was important to me to expand the Health Network to include these GI doctors and Duke Gastroenterology of Raleigh is the first (of I hope many) to be a part of this growing Health Network.

The Duke Gastroenterology of Raleigh practice is located in North Raleigh near Duke Raleigh Community Hospital and is affiliated with the Duke Health System. The practice has three doctors; Aaron L. Woofter, MD, Jesse Liu, MD and Savita Srivastava, MD. I have spoken with Dr. Woofter on the phone and through various emails over the last few weeks. He was very excited about being able to help Celiacs and/or people who were having GI issues that thought Celiac might be the cause. He let me know their practice handles many Celiac patients and is accepting new patients at this time. He also let me know that Duke is continually ranked among the top 15 best hospitals in the country for gastroenterology by U.S.News & World Report, and the faculty of the Division of Gastroenterology are national and international leaders in their respective specialties.

Welcome aboard Dr. Woofter and your associates and thanks for helping!
