Gastroenterology in Focus: Celiac Infographic

Always keeping up with health and wellness, some Best Doctors colleagues in Europe built a new infographic on a rare but little-understood condition – celiac disease. While it doesn’t affect many people, because symptoms can be confused with other ailments, those afflicted with celiac may go without a diagnosis for quite a while.

It’s worth calling attention to because Gastroenterology is the fourth most common specialty for Best Doctors’ members who seek an expert case review. This specialty ranks high for cost savings as well – it’s more likely than nearly every other specialty to produce cost savings when members receive an expert medical review, and those savings can average more than $44,000 per case. That’s more than a stomach ache, but it illustrates the significant impact that the right medical intervention can have for patients.
