This is one of the worst "communities" WebMD offers. There are rarely any professional replies, just usually people like me, which is usually more helpful, anyway. If a "community" can't be run efficiently and professionally, then it shouldn't be offered. All I see down the list is "0 replies, 0 replies", ad nauseum. How about getting some decent doctors onboard who care enough to answer people's questions???

Hi sherm80 -

We hear you! We have been looking for experts for this very active community.

The experts volunteer their time in WebMD's communities, responding to member concerns and symptoms. Unfortunately, the experts are unable to diagnosis over the internet which sometimes makes it difficult to respond members concerns, it has been difficult finding experts.

You are correct, this is a community with many unanswered questions, we do have a small group of members, like yourself, who are supportive and responsive. This is very much appreciated by members and WebMD staff.

Thanks for posting this and if you or anyone else knows of a gastrointestinal specialist that may be interested in joining community please have them contact us.

We are also in the process of revising the Announcement area to easily search for symptoms and conditions.

Please let us know if you have other ideas to grow community membership - example: Member "experts" responding to member concerns and symptoms, similar to our Crohn's and Colitis Community.

Please know that I am not a medical expert, but I am here to help find solutions.

Thanks sherm08!
Elizabeth
