Pediatric Gastroenterologist for 2 year old
My 2 year old son has been diagnosed with Delayed Gastric Emptying, reflux, and
multiple food allergies. We are currently working with a GI doctor who has been
somewhat helpful, but my son continues to be in serious pain, and the doctor
isn't sure what else to do for him. As his mom, that's just not good enough for
me....I need to find someone who can figure out why he is still in a significant
amount of pain.
Have you taken your child to a GI specialist that you love? Right now we're
working with a GI specialist at a Children's Hospital, but we're open to any
hospital team, or a private practice GI. Alternatively, any GI docs that we
We live on the Peninsula, but we're open to driving anywhere to see someone
great. Please feel free to ask moderator for my email if you'd rather discuss
Thanks so much!
We really, really, like Fadi G. Haddad, M.D. who is in
private practice in Walnut Creek (925-975-0775,
http://www.kidsgicare.com/). He is extremely thorough and
correctly diagnosed our daughter with a serious condition
after it was missed by a highly recommended pediatric GI at
Children's Hospital Oakland. Good for you for following your
instincts and seeking another opinion in case something has
been missed or there are other, better, treatments
available. Good luck.
We have been very happy with Dr. Fadi Haddad. He is extremeley thorough
and has a great way with children. His office is in Walnut Creek, near
John Muir Medical Center. I'm not as fond of his partner though so stick
with Haddad. Celiac Momma
i sent a request to the moderator for your email, but
haven't heard back yet, so feel free to contact me directly
at the email below. depending on the diagnosis, IMO there are a few good
pediatric gi's in the area. however, my daughter was
diagnosed w/ an autoimmune disease approx 9 months ago that
presents much as how you've described your son and is
related to food/environmental allergies and intolerances.
it's called eosinophilic esophagitis, or EoE, (she also has
eosinophilic colitis) and can only be diagnosed through
scope (endoscopy/colonoscopy) AND tissue biopsy. for this
disease, the dr must also be familiar w/ the protocol for
where to biopsy. dr. cox at stanford has been recommended to
us, but we currently see dr melvin heyman at ucsf. both are
pediatric gi's, and both come highly recommended. however,
for my daughter's diagnosis, i'm still figuring out if any
dr in the bay area has enough experience treating this
i have too much info to put in a post, so please email me if
you'd like to talk further. best of luck, there's not much
worse than seeing your child in such pain.
I am sorry that I didn't see your original post, but one of my children
saw Mel Heyman at UCSF for reflux and didn't get much relief or help
from conventional medicine. One of her friends also saw Dr. Heyman, had
very extensive tests, and then the diagnosis turned out to be lactose
intolerance, which maybe should have been considered before innumerable
and invasive tests.
In the interim, two adult GI docs recommended a Dr. Haddad in Walnut
Creek to us, both saying that they thought highly of him. We never saw
Dr. Haddad because I submitted to having my child treated with
acupuncture and herbs, and she is about 80-90% better. Go figure.
Good luck to you. GI stuff can be tricky.
Hi: My son suffered years of frequent stomachaches, loss of
appetite, and malabsorption. He had no weight gain for a
couple of years and was in 1 percentile for ht and wt. It
was worrisome. Saw Dorsey Bass, at PAMF, then Mel Heyman
at UCSF. Dr. Bass could find nothing wrong. Dr. Heyman
ran extensive tests and surgery to scope out the problems. All very
expensive but none of which provided any real
answers whatsoever. Fortunately, we found an excellent
Chinese acupuncturist and in 3 months, acupuncture has made
a huge difference at a fraction of the costs. Anonymous
Pediatric Gastroenterologist for my 3 yr old
I am looking for a referral to a good, experienced Pediatric
Gastroenterologist for my 3 yr old. I am looking for
someone who is willing to perform procedures themselves vs.
Fellows as is the practice at the teaching hospitals such as
UCSF or Stanford.
Thanks in advance.
Elizabeth Gleghorn at Children's Hospital Oakland has been
incredible. She is very responsive (we get emails
responses at 10 at night!) and is head of the GI dept at
CHO. Our kid is sort of complicated (in heart failure and
has a feeding tube, etc) and she's been great to work
with. She's kind of no-nonsense but has a great sense of
humor if you can break through :-)
My 4-year-old is a patient of pediatric gastroenterologist
Fadi G. Haddad, M.D. in Walnut Creek, 925-975-0775,
www.kidsgicare.com. He is extremely kind and thorough and
has done a wonderful job diagnosing and treating my
daughter. We got to him after having a bad experience
somewhere else. Dr. Haddad has performed several procedures
on my daughter and yes, he does the procedures himself. I
highly recommend Dr. Haddad. He is well worth the drive
through the tunnel.
We have had great success with Dr. Fadi Haddad in Walnut Creek.

Pediatric Gastroenterologist at Children's Hospital
My daughter was recently referred by her pediatrician to the
Children's Hospital GI department to rule out mal-absorption
issues as she is just 17lbs at 17 months old. We have an
appointment in late June with Dr Elizabeth Gleghorn. I'm
interested in hearing about experiences with this MD. I am hoping
that she will listen, is not too invasive with care and will take
into account family history (both my husband and I were small
babies, and I have GI issues). Thanks in advance for sharing your
Hi, I am a therapist at Children's and work with many of her
patients. I wanted to assure you that you are in very good hands
with Dr Cleghorn and with CHO in general.
I have read positive reviews of Dr. Gleghorn on BPN. So there
definitely are people who were happy with the help they
My experience with Dr. Gleghorn is unfortunately not positive. I
found her rather dismissive. I got the feeling if your child
doesn't have a condition that she deems to be severe enough, she
will not treat your child as a patient really needing any help.
When talking to my child's other doctors at CHO, about the
outcome of the visits, I heard that this was not unusual for
Now, this could still just have been an isolated, unfortunate
occurrence. However, other parents I have met over the past
years, who needed a pediatric GI for their children, confirmed
having had similar experience with Dr. Gleghorn. I have to say
that all the children I am talking about, were born with
systemic anomalies, and were clearly not simple cases that
didn't need intervention.
I have also expressed my concerns to other, new parents with
issues similar to your child's. They also heard similar opinions
from their own doctors about Dr. G. You may still go and see for
yourself. If you don't feel you got the help you expected, I
suggest you try to get referred to UCSF for a second opinion.
pretty sure she's the doc we saw when my daughter had some
apparent reflux issues. She was great-straightforward,
reassuring, not at all invasive (recommended against a more
invasive procedure that would have possibly given us more
definitive info, in favor of the ''most likely solution'' w/
basically no adverse side effects.) She's smart, didn't mind
lots of questions & challenges on my part. So don't worry.
I have worked with Dr. Gleghorn for 12 years and she is as dedicated
a doctor as there is. At Children's Hospital Oakland we are all
very dedicated and spend long hours there, but Dr. Gleghorn is
surpassed only by a handful of doctors for the time she puts in at
the hospital. She is an expert in Pediatric GI, unsurpassed by
anyone else I have worked with in my career and I've had the finest
training at the top medical centers in the country. Dr. Gleghorn is
the one to see to make sure you are getting the best possible
medical Pediatric GI opinion.
Dr. Gleghorn was my son's Gastroenterologist (sp?) approximately 10
years ago. At one years of age he developed aspiration and needed a GT
tube. I wouldn't say she has a cuddly bedside manner but she was a
good fit for our family. I found her and her staff accomodating,
knowledgeable and helpful through our four year ordeal. Of course this
was 10-14 years ago but I imagine she has even more experience then she
had at that time.
Pediatric Gastroenterologist for 2 year old with stomach pain
I have a 2 year old with stomach pain (gas pain or ????) throughout
the night causing her to wake up hourly. She has a history of
stomach problems from when she was 6 months old. Frequent vomiting,
gas, pain, etc. She has had an upper GI and they found nothing
abnormal. She does not have pain when she eats or drinks and reflux
is not suspected. We can go to any area -even Sacramento area.
Dr. Fadi Haddad in Walnut Creek has helped my daughter with the sames kind of
problems. He's very nice and genuinely concerned. Here's his info:

Mom whose been through a few pediatric GI docs
Gastroenterologist for Crohn's Disease
Hello BPN family,
I recently changed medical groups and I've been given a list of gastroenterology doctors, but I'm having a hard time learning anything about their bedside manner, etc. I am pregnant, and although my Crohn's is stable, I need to renew my prescriptions and get some blood work done in the next few weeks. Thank you
Paul Chard is EXCELLENT. He has a terrific bedside manner -- he is
very thorough, patient, listens very carefully, follows up, and has
a good sense of humor. I recommend him very highly!
My GP sent me to Villagomez for my colonoscopy, and I was happy
with her (as happy as anyone could be given the procedure!). Her
office is well run, and she is personable and competent.
When I turned 50 and opted to have an colonoscopy, my MD referred
me to Dr. Thomas Hargrave. When I met with him he was personable
and smart and he inspired confidence. Should I need a GI MD in the
future I would seek his services.
Both my husband and I go to Dr. John Roark for our preventive
screenings (colonscopy and endoscopy) and have the utmost respect
for his abilities. My husband has GURD and is also happy with his
I used to see Silvia Villagomez (had to change because of
insurance) and loved her. She diagnosed my Crohn's shortly before
I became pregnant with my first child and did a great job both
during and after pregnancy, when I had a flareup. I was really sad
to leave her. I also really like Paul Chard on a personal basis,
but don't know him at all professionally. My impression, though,
is that he would be great.
Been there with Crohn's
Dr. Hargrave is my GI doctor and I like his chairside manner very
much - he seems genuinely concerned when we meet in his office.
He's one of those obviously brilliant people whose mind works at
lightning speed, so I sometimes have to ask him to slow down, which
he does. He's got a wonderfully dry sense of humor, which I
appreciate. He did my colonoscopy and I didn't feel a thing. I
know one of his partners, Mike Darby, because I am an RN and worked
with Mike years ago when he was a resident. I found him warm,
empathic and also extremely smart.
John Roarke was my GI doctor for a brief period about 15 yrs ago
-- brief because I found him rude and arrogant, and not a good
listener. He never apologized for the long waits and took phone
calls during my appointment. I would definitely not recommend him.
I saw Liana Vesga recently for what she ended up diagnosing as IBS.
She has a good bedside manner, and did not push any tests or drugs
on me, which I liked. Overall, I had a good experience with her,
though this is based on one visit only.
pediatric gastroenterologist in the East Bay Area
I will be very grateful to get a referral for pediatric
gastroenterologist in the East Bay Area.
I work at Children's Hospital in Oakland, and can recommend the GI
physicians there, Drs. Gleghorn, Harmatz and Ali. I can also
recommend Dr. Haddad; I believe his private practice is in Walnut
Creek. They are all experienced and excell at what they do.
Children's Hospital RN
Gastroenterology Associates of the East Bay
Has anyone had experience with any of the doctors at
Gastroenterology Associates of the East Bay (Berjis, Bhuket,
Chalal, Cheng, Higa, Hosseini, Narayan, Silpa)? My doctor there
retired and I know nothing about the other doctors.
Looking for a good doctor
Regarding GI docs, the one you mentioned that I am familiar with is
Dr. Bergis. I am a dietitian working in home health in E. Bay for 5
yrs and have consulted with Dr. Bergis a few times regarding
patients. He has great bedside manners and is responsive in a
timely fashion to calls. I get the feeling he is well informed of
newest research as well. Best of luck.
RD from visiting nurses assn.
I had a colonoscopy performed by Dr. Hosseini about 4 years ago that
went perfectly. Good luck.
Well I saw Silpa a few times for a procedure. He was friendly and
very to the point when talking. That was two decades ago, however,
so I don't know what he is like now.
I'm scheduled for a colonoscopy in a few weeks with Dr. Michael Abel. He's in SF, but
I think it's worth the short trip from the east bay to go to a really good doctor. He
was highly recommended to me by my father's doctor. (My dad has colon cancer and is
being seen by a team of top doctors in NY.) I can't yet comment on the procedure, but
my office visit with him went very well and I am confident in his abilities. I was
happy to learn that he uses the ''pill'' prep rather than the ''liquid'' I've heard is
so unpleasant. I don't know if many doctors would allow you to deviate from the
standard prep that they use. My understanding is they are pretty strict about that.
I don't know if she's ''excellent'', but I have had many colonoscopies performed by
Dr. Silvia Villa Gomez. She's with a large practice in Oakland at 3300 Webster Street,
Suite 312, 444-6421. She has served me well, including referring me to a surgeon for a
polyp she couldn't remove during the colonoscopy that turned out to be stage 2 colon
cancer. She is very gentle, very personable, and sweet. On the prep, just do whatever
your doctor recommends. You need to be cleaned out completely. Just grin and bear it.
It's just 1/2 day of discomfort. The prep has evolved, and most no longer involve
drinking a gallon of medicated fluid. Anything is better than that.
Veteran of Many Colonoscopies
You don't think recommendations from February 2007 are recent enough? That's barely a
year ago. Maybe you didn't see that part of the site?
Mine is the first recommendation for Dr. Villagomez.
gastroenterologist for irritable bowel syndrome
My husband has been having ongoing stomach problems, diagnosed as irritable
bowel syndrome. Has anyone had a good experience lately with a
gastroenterologist? We'd appreciate any recommendations offered. We're
considering alternative routes, too. Is anyone familiar with a good
naturopath? Thanks for your suggestions.
I have had 2 colonoscopys with Neil Stollman in Oakland. He is smart, down
to earth, funny, and his staff is great. I went in with a problem that had
beem misdiagnosed for 18 months. He listened, tried some probiotics and
when they didn't work said ''let's see what's going on in there''. It
turned out to be a serious upper colon infection that would not have gone
away on it's own. I was on meds for 7 months and now it's gone. I always
prefer 'alternative' practices but even my accupunturist said I needed to
do this. Don't mess with the GI tract.
a wuss who's been there
I recently saw Liana Vesga at the East Bay Center for Digestive Health,
also for IBS (she diagnosed it). She seemed knowledgable, I thought she
had a great manner, listened carefully, and didn't seem to push any
unnecessary intervention or medication. I only saw her once, but this one
interaction was very positive.
Need a Surgeon for ''The Wrap'' (GERD)
Has anyone had a positive (or negative) experience with a 'Laparoscopic
Nissen Fundoplication' aka ''the wrap''? After the birth of my 3rd child I
learned that I have several reflux and a medium sized hiatal hernia. I would
like to get this repaired so that I don't feel sick all the time (I have
constant regurgitation - it's like morning sickness all the time!) and also
don't have to take medicine for the rest of my life. (I've made all the
''lifestyle'' changes recommended, but unfortunately none of them have made a
dent in the symptoms.) I've heard mixed things about the success of this
procedure and don't know how to find out the reputations of the surgeons who
perform the procedure. Has anyone had this experience? Know of any surgeons
who do the procedure? Thank you so much!
Hoping to feel better
I too suffered from severe acid reflux for years -- my whole life probably -- until I
just couldn't live with it anymore. I had the nissen fundoplication surgery four years
ago and couldn't be happier with the results. Before the surgery, my diet was
incredibly restricted and I took prilosec-like meds at the highest doses every day and
STILL had constant pain. Now I eat whatever I want pretty much, although I still go
easy on the very acidic stuff. Occasionally I get heartburn and take an antacid -- just
like a normal person!
I had the surgery in SF (where I lived at the time) at California Pacific, the Pacific
Campus. My grastroenterologist was Dr. Frank Farrell on Geary. He was great -- really
nice and smart. My surgeon was Dr. Lawrence Yee. He's not the touchy-feely type, but
he's competent and thorough and, well, he fixed me!
The downside to the surgery is that it is, well, abdominal surgery. Even though it's
laparoscopic, I found the recovery to be tougher than I expected. I took two weeks off
from work, and I should have taken 3 or 4. Eating and swallowing were challenging for
quite some time post-op and I lost 15 pounds or so (not a bad thing I guess). My advice
is just to make sure you take enough time to heal and recover.
Also, the testing that I had to do prior to the surgery was pretty brutal. I had to
wear a pH monitor for 24 hours (tube down my nose into my stomach) and had to do a
couple of yucky x-ray type tests too.
But again, I am fixed. Seriously, it was worth it. If I have to have it re-done in
the future I will be disappointed, but I will still do it.
no more tummy troubles
Gastroenterologist near Walnut Creek
I am looking for a gastroenterologist in the Walnut Creek
area. I am looking for someone who is clinicially competent
but will take the time to get a complete picture of my medical
situation. Anyone have any recommendations?
I just had a very good experience with a Dr. Shehendu Narayan (not sure if I'm
spelling the name right) who performed a screening colonoscopy. He has an office
in Walnut Creek and did the procedure at John Muir. I was dreading it (put it off
for 2 years) and found the whole experience (including my interactions with him) to
be better than I had expected. hope that helps
Doctor for G.I. discomfort and bloating
I have been struggling with G.I. discomfort and bloating for the past year plus and
have not been able to get any help through my regular physician and a G.I.
specialist. It seems to have something to do with digestion, where through the
coarse of the day my stomach gets more and more bloated.By evening it is very
distended, hard, and uncomfortable with a lot of gas. I'm not sure if I should see an
allergist/accupuncturist/or dietician at this point. If anyone has any experience with
this and has had success with treatment please let me know what has worked and
who it was that was able to help you. Thanks so much
To rule out any growths that are obstructing, you may want to
get an MRI or something similar ...pelvic ultrasound?(but I'm no
medical specilaist or generalist). See if you can get your doc
to refer you.
Never written or recommended anything on BPN, but read about your
problem and had to follow up. Do you think you may have Celiac
Disease? I had never heard of it before, but was just diagnosed
2 months ago, and one of my main symptoms was bloating and
discomfort every evening, on top of constant diahrrea! My
primary physician could not figure out my problem. Turned in
endless stoll samples and did number of blood tests. Finally, a
blood test was leaning toward Celiac Disease. He refered me to
his friend Dr. Michael Silpa (Amazing GI specialist-
510-548-6555)who met with me and did biopsy of small intestines,
which indeed confirmed that I was a Celiac. I am feeling 100%
better now! Go online and research Celiac Disease, ask your dr.
if he has tested you for Celiac, try going on a gluten-free diet
for a couple of days, and/or give Dr. Silpa a call. Love him,
but can take awhile to get scheduled for an appointment, that is
unless your primary dr. is his buddy. Good luck!
Celiac with happy tummy
Gastroenterologist for stomach/bowel related issues
Does anyone know of a gastroenterologist in the Bay Area that
they trust and who has a good beside manner? A friend has been
suffering from stomach/bowel related issues that have affected
his life for 10 years now. He has had negative experiences,
thus far (primary care doc, gastroenterologist, naturopath,
chiropracter) and would love a recommendation from a trusted
source. He was thinking of trying UCSF, but would prefer any
insight. Thank you.
I'd recommend Dan Conlin at CPMC. He treated my husband
following some issues caused by powerful medication required to
treat viral illness. It was a bit of an emergency so Dr.
Conlin came to his office an hour early to meet with us, had
the tests run in short order and was as soothing as could be.
Gastroenterologist for Celiacs
I have recently been diagnosed with Celiacs and have been given
a recommendation for both Doctor T.Hargrave and Doctor S. Villa-
Gomez. Has anyone seen either of these doctors? Also any
recommendations for a celiacs nutritionist would be appreciated.
Dr. Hargrave is an extraordinary and devoted
gastoenterologist . He actually lectures on the topic of Celiac
disease and gluten enteropathy to other doctors . I too have
Celiac disease and have been seeing him since 1998. He is
thorough and cares about the 'whole' patient and sets the same
high standard for his staff.
I highly recommend Dr. Hargrave. He is very well respected
among his peers (is on top of the latest research), is an
excellent listener, and does not rush you. He has a very
I was very disappointed when I had to leave him because he was
not in the network of my company's new health plan. You will
get excellent attention and care from him.
I went to Dr. Silvia Villa-Gomez for some severe GI distress and
she performed a colonoscopy on me. Although the consultation
was very brief and felt hurried, I was able to get my questions
I was referred to Dr. Villa-Gomez for her ''gentle'' demeanor by
my general practitioner. Silvia does have an engaging manner
and I did appreciate that (given the procedure I had to
undergo). I didn't really see her for followup though --
colonoscopy day consisted of a brief wave of her hand.
I'd go to see her again and recommend her.
Re: Anal Fissure
You can't find a better doctor on this malady (and anything
related) than Dr. Michael Verhille, a gastroenterologist in
San Francisco (415-387-8800). He is fantastic. I also know
that frequent, long, warm baths work wonders at promoting
relaxation and thus healing of the area. Good luck.
I have to have a colonoscopy because of a family history of
colon cancer, and I'm looking for a skilled, responsible
gastroenterologist who is a member of Hill Physicians. The
archives only mention one doctor.
Dr. Danny Wu is a very good gastroenterologist. I had a partial
colonoscopy done by him and I was dreading it because I had
heard how unpleasant they are. When he said he was done, I was
astounded because it had been so gentle and not terrible at
all. My mother needed to have a colonoscopy and she was really
resisting her doctor on it. I told her about Dr. Wu; she went
and she agreed with me about his technique. Good luck.
My husband is looking for a gastro-enterologist, preferably in
Alta Bates Medical Group, though not required. Can anyone suggest
a good one? He is having issues related to liver function and
wants to find someone new to get a second opinion.
I really like Dr. Lisa Higa, a GI doc at Alta Bates. I have
worked with her many times during my 9 years as an RN at Alta
Bates. She is wonderfully friendly, energetic and very smart.
I wouldn't hesitate to see her or send my family to her. Good
Alta Bates RN
Try Dr. Rorke (sp?) at Berkeley Digestive Health, (510) 848-
2100. I thought he was great. Very knowledgable, and is a
parent of two girls- we talked about child-rearing! I first saw
Dr. Naryan, who was okay, but not as personable and interactive
as Dr. Rorke. Also, when I needed a return visit to Dr. Narayan
because of problems, I was given a 4-5 week wait for an
appointment. With Dr. Rorke, it was within a week.
I guess I missed the first message, so I don't know if you need
a gastroenterologist with Alta Bates, but Dr. Henry Kung in
Walnut Creek is the best in the area, probably one of the best
in the country. He is affiliated with John Muir, Mt Diablo,
and San Ramon Medical Centers. 925-945-6070
Darby and Hargrave, M.D.s, in Oakland are both superlative, have
very long waiting lists, and may or may not be taking on new
patients. They are partners and listed in the Oakland directory.
Both are excellent, and a lot of physicians' families use them.
I've been going to Gastroenterology Associates of the
East Bay for about 15 years to treat mild colitis. I
saw Ronald Adler, who was wonderful, but is now mostly
retired. His replacement I've seen once, Dr. Husseini
(sp?), and he seemed fine. Good luck.
Can anyone recommend a doctor specializing in treating Crohn's disease? This
is for my 17-year old stepdaughter. Fran
The gastroenterology group (not sure of the actual name) in Berkeley has
several really good doctors. The phone number is 548-6555. If your
step-daughter is part of an HMO, with a primary care physician, it is also a
good idea to ask the primary care doctor who he/she has a good working
My husband needs to go get his biannual colonoscopy for ulcerative
colitis soon. We are new to the area since his last exam and don't know any
good GIs in the East Bay that practice at Alta Bates. He picked a Doctor
Rourk out of our preferred provider directory. Does anyone have experience,
good or bad with this doctor? We got the preprocedure instructions and they
are quite unprofessional (sloppy and hard to understand) obviously this
isn't necessarily a problem since what we want is good clinical skill but
since we don't know him it gives me pause.
Please post replies to the list. Thanks so much!
I just had a colonoscopy with Dr. Rourke and it was fine. It was the first
one I've had, and I was anxious about it, but it went just fine.
I have been going to Dr. Roark, for about 13 or 14 years. He is the
best, the very best. He has treated me for both polpys, and ulcers. and
I have never had any complaints. Glenda
I went to Dr. Rourk about 6 years ago for some vague GI symptoms I was having.
I'd say overall my experience with him was neutral. I think in terms of
skill my impression is that he is finecertainly careful and conservative. He
did a flex sig. and a upper GI endoscopy on me with no complications/problems.
I didn't find his bedside manner particularly enchanting. He couldn't get to
the bottom of what was bothering me but I don't think that was his fault.
Sorry about your husband's colitis. Hopefully he has some nutritional
to relieve the irritation. A great book on this topic is called BREAKING THE
VICIOUS CYCLE by Elaine Gottschall. Meanwhile, I too am having a
Dr. Roark. He is well-regarded and says has had no complications from this
procedure in the years he has performed it. Mine is being done 2/20/01. If
husband's follows mine, I will be happy to share the experience. The office
help/support has always seemed to me a bit overcommitted-- hard to get through
on the phone, difficult to be acknowledged when arriving for appointments,
abruptness in conversation. And I too agree that the instructions were abit
sloppily prepared, but I understand them. A small tidbit I got from the
on the last day when only liquids are allowed, I was told that I could
much of Vanilla Lite Ensure as I want: it has zero fiber (and redeeming
nutritional value, in my opinion) and will not interfere with the procedure's
success. But I suggest he check for himself. Good luck!
