BEFORE CONSULTING WITH WILLIAM SALT, M.D.
IBS & Gut Microbiome Solutions
DR. SALT specializes in the care of those suffering with enteropathy
ENTEROPATHY IS THE TRIAD OF:
1. ABDOMINAL PAIN/DISCOMFORT
2. GAS (ABDOMINAL BLOATING, DISTENTION)
3. BOWEL DYSFUNCTION (CONSTIPATION, DIARRHEa OR BOTH)
Enteropathy refers to disease, disorders, or dysfunction involving the small intestine, colon, or both.
The most common enteropathy diagnoses include Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), gut microbiome dysbiosis, and “leaky gut.” The initial diagnosis for most doctors is usually IBS, but there are many other diagnoses and associated conditions that must be considered. An IBS diagnosis usually stops the consideration of other possibilities. It is imperative that all possibilities be considered and identified; otherwise treatment will be directed only to IBS, leaving the patient unwell.
Below, is Dr. Salt's Map of the many causes of and conditions associated with enteropathy, upon which his new e-learning program is based:
Understanding IBS, SIBO, Gut Microbiome Dysbiosis & Leaky Gut: An Integrative Gastroenterologist Guides You to Empowerment, to which all of his patients can have free access (a $249 value).
Dr. Salt's IBS & Gut Microbiome Solutions
is a direct care gastroenterology practice
insurance is not accepted
This means that insurance, Medicaid, and Medicare are not accepted. Dr. Salt is considered by these third party insurers as an “out of network provider." Payment by credit card, debit card, check, or cash is required at the time of the visit. Dr. Salt, however is an “in network prescriber,” so insurance kicks in as it normally would for any lab work, imaging, or procedures Dr. Salt may order.
Dr. Salt of IBS & Gut Microbiome Solutions does not perform procedures, such as endoscopy and colonoscopy,
AND HE DOES NOT VISIT HOSPITAL PATIENTS
However, if procedures are needed, Dr. Salt can refer to any gastroenterologist requested by the patient and he can recommend and refer to gastroenterologists if the patient has no preference. He is committed to outpatient care of those suffering with enteropathy. If you have a serious enteropathy, such as Crohn's disease or colitis, you should have an established gastroenterologist, since Dr. Salt does not prescribe immune modulating drugs, such as azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurine or biologic drugs, such as Remicade or Humira. He does not manage emergencies or prescribe either opioids or benzodiazepines.
