What Our Patients Say About US

*My six year old son developed a slew of seemingly unrelated symptoms, including abdominal pain, nausea, gastroparesis, high blood pressure and foot and hand pain. He spent five days in the hospital, but it wasn't until we came to the IBS Treatment Center that the cause was found and his symptoms fully resolved. Our son is now thriving. Thank you!!

Ethan (and Rachel) Pollack ~ Seattle, Washington

Dr. Wangen’s clinic has saved my life twice. Once by curing my own debilitating issues, and secondly, by curing my six year old son’s.

I had IBS issues for fifteen years and had seen many doctors before finally visiting the IBS Treatment Center. I first heard of them in New York before moving to Seattle, and was eager to give him a try after relocating. With their guidance I am now healthy again.

A number of years later, my six year old son developed a slew of seemingly unrelated symptoms, including abdominal pain, nausea, gastroparesis, high blood pressure and foot and hand pain. He spent five days in the hospital, was poked and prodded by numerous docs.

They gave him some treatment for his symptoms, but it wasn’t until we came to the IBS Treatment Center that the cause was found and his symptoms fully resolved. Our son is now thriving.

We finally have our old, healthy and happy kid back and couldn’t be more grateful to you for all of you help!

Thank you!!

*I had been sick for 11 years. I had severe, chronic gas and diarrhea for all those years. I had been to 17 doctors including 5 gastroenterologists. I can now say that I am once again living a normal life. I will forever be indebted to you.

Anonymous

I had been sick for 11 years since a European vacation. I had severe, chronic gas and diarrhea for all those years.

I had been to 17 doctors including 5 gastroenterologists, 3 infectious disease specialists, a homeopathy doctor, and many others (including the Cleveland Clinic).

I had every GI test possible. I’d sent dozens of stool samples. I tried every diet suggested. My symptoms had completely ruined my life in almost every way.

One evening this past march, after I parked my car in the garage, I seriously sat and considered whether or not my life was even worth living. I’d lost everyone and everything I ever cared about.

Naturally, I came to my senses after a few minutes, and I vowed that I wasn’t going to give up. I decided that I would go in the house and surf the net AGAIN for ideas or answers. An hour later, I came across your web site.

I’d seen it before but never considered a trip to Seattle to be feasible, due to my symptoms. I read EVERY word and testimony on your website.

I can now say that I am once again living a normal life. It’s taken some getting used to. Sometimes I just can’t believe it. And you are the only doctor who really listened. I had several doctors laugh at me over the years.

I will forever be indebted to you. I recommend you to everyone I talk to.

Please keep up the good work.

*I have had terribly bad IBS for many years and have been to many specialists with no results. After one month, my IBS issues have improved tremendously. I would like to say a great big "Thank You."

Carol ~ Sacramento, California

Health – Relief, Thankfulness, and Satisfaction

I have had terribly bad IBS for many years and have been to many specialists with no results. The only result was the doctors got richer and I got sicker.

My sister found the IBS Treatment Center on the internet. She passed all the information on to me and I called the center immediately and an appointment was made, and then I went to Seattle.

When I arrived at the IBS Center, I was greeted and was made to feel welcome and comfortable. While talking to the doctor, any questions I had were answered.

He gave me hope again. He explained all the information to me so I could understand it. I went home feeling like there was a chance for me to get over my IBS.

After one month, my IBS is about 95% gone.

I would like to say a great big “Thank You.” You will never meet such nice, helpful and understanding, polite staff than at the IBS Center.

I highly recommend anyone with IBS to contact the IBS Center – 100%.

*Since I have followed your recommendations I have seen a remarkable improvement.

Gary Lindemann ~ Conyers, Georgia

Several years ago my Gastroenterologist diagnosed me with IBS. Since I have followed your recommendations I have seen a remarkable improvement.

Next to no abdominal cramping or gas. This is the most relief I have had since being diagnosed with IBS.

Thank you.

Respectfully,

Gary Lindemann ~ Conyers, Georgia

*My life has improved to a degree I'm unable to express. I was in constant pain, unable to leave my house for fear of diarrhea and a lack of a bathroom, unwilling to even eat simple meals, and hopeless of ever resolving my situation. Its been 5 months and... I am in control of my life.

Aaron Reich ~ Seattle, Washington

My life has improved to a degree I’m unable to express. I was in constant pain, unable to leave my house for fear of diarrhea and a lack of a bathroom, unwilling to even eat simple meals, and hopeless of ever resolving my situation.

Its been 5 months and… I am in control of my life. Thats all I could have ever asked for. I had seen too many other doctors and specialists who had simply dismissed me to think this could work.

Eventually my mother convinced me it was worth a shot. It was the decision that has made my life enjoyable again. The fact stays the same that my life is immeasurably better. As the months go by it’s only getting easier.

The purpose of my note is simply to thank you and your staff for providing such wonderful service and thoughtful care.

*I have suffered with IBS-D for about 30 years. I feel like I have gotten my life back, and I look forward to doing things I haven't felt comfortable about doing before, like leaving the house!

Bonnie D ~ West Fargo, North Dakota

I have suffered with IBS-D for about 30 years. IBS is not a life threatening condition, but it is a life affecting condition.

I had gotten to the point where I had to resort to wearing adult protection against accidents. Just knowing where the bathrooms were located at all times wasn’t enough, and there were times when I just didn’t have the time to make it to the bathroom.

It was so bad I couldn’t go out to eat with my family and friends for fear of an accident. Traveling was miserable, as you didn’t know if you would be sitting in the bathroom when your plane was called. Or if you would need to go when you were walking down the jet way, or during take-off. I didn’t eat the day I traveled.

Traveling by car was a little simpler, as you got off the interstate at the first place you could and found a gas station or any public rest-room. I was in pain 90% of the time, as well as being bloated.

I searched the internet for help. I read similar stories from people and tried the things they used that seemed to help them, all to no avail.

Then I was fortunate enough to find Dr. Wangen’s IBS Treatment Center. Reading his website I knew this was someone who could help me. Everything on the site made sense.

I made an appointment to see him. I live in North Dakota and felt it was worth the misery to fly out.

When you walk into the office, you are first greeted by smiling faces welcoming you, and showing you where the bathrooms are. This was my first clue that I came to the right place, as I have never gone somewhere and had the bathroom pointed out to me. I knew these people understood my situation. The customer service is phenomenal.

When I met with the doctor, I immediately felt comfortable, as I felt he knew exactly what I was going through. He understood, and it was wonderful to finally have someone who would truly listen and not make me believe it was all in my head or stress related.

The doctor explained what types of tests would be completed and that he would set up a phone consultation to explain them, so that I would not have to incur more expense by flying back to Seattle to have them interpreted.

I have been feeling great. The pain is down to about 5 %, the bloating is also down significantly. I feel like I have gotten my life back again. I am looking forward to flying to visit my sister in another state.

I have more confidence, and I have even been able to go out to eat a couple of times without mishap.

I feel like I have gotten my life back, and I look forward to doing things I haven’t felt comfortable about doing before, like leaving the house!

Thank you to Dr. Wangen and his staff.

*Just a follow up - way, way back in 2003 ...

Stephen Westfall ~ Kenmore, Washington

Just a follow up – way, way back in 2003 …

I [have] kept my immune system healthy enough to constantly over the years accumulate many unused sick days at work.

Prior I would always use up my sick days and then have to dip into vacation days.

Just wanted to thank you for promoting wellness instead of just treating sickness!

Stephen Westfall ~ Kenmore, Washington

*I am writing to express my gratitude in having me correctly diagnosed. I feel my life is back on track and I will be able to pursue my educational goals. I am feeling healthier and I am able to enjoy going out with my friends. Thank you again for your assistance.

Dennis Ruffe ~ Brick, New Jersey

I am writing to express my gratitude in having me correctly diagnosed. For about two years, I had undergone every medical test and had not been able to find the cause of my abdominal pain and diarrhea.

I needed to take a medical leave of absence from college. I was also seeing a hypnotherapist and an acupuncturist to alleviate my symptoms.

I was able to return to college. I have just completed my course work for the Fall 2009 semester with a grade point average of 4.0.

Without your help this would have been impossible. I feel my life is back on track and I will be able to pursue my educational goals.

My parents and I are extremely grateful and happy that we were able to get to the underlying causes of my symptoms. I am feeling healthier and I am able to enjoy going out with my friends.

Thank you again for your assistance.
Sincerely,

Dennis Ruffe ~ Brick, New Jersey

*I have been suffering from symptoms of IBS since I was a child. I have vivid memories of scoping out the remote bathrooms at schools, malls, and work places. Shortly after starting my treatment plan, we found out we were expecting our third child and I had such a wonderful pregnancy! We have gone on vacation, I have volunteered at school, taken my kids to amusement parks, and the list goes on and on!

Meredith ~ Minnesota

It has about a year and a half since my trip to IBS Treatment Center. I don’t think I am exaggerating to say that the trip changed my life. I have been suffering from symptoms of IBS since I was a child.

I have vivid memories of scoping out the remote bathrooms at schools, malls, and work places. Road trips have always been routed based on the availability of bathrooms.

This has always been an embarrassing and emotional subject for me and I’d mention it almost in passing to doctors and acted like I had it under control.

After giving birth to my first child and the strain that delivering a 9 lb baby put on my body, the urgency became more of an issue.

I finally got a referral to a gastroenterologist who ordered a sigmoidoscopy and a barium enema. The end result was “good news” that nothing was wrong and that I was just going to have to live with it.

Don’t get me wrong, I was very relieved to know that there wasn’t something life threatening but there was also nothing I could do to fix me.

As my first child got older, it wasn’t fair to ask him to wait in the ladies room with me over and over again. We would have to get out of line at amusement parks, leave the museum, etc. and he was such a trooper and never complained.

At his kindergarten musical, he was selected to bring a flower to his mom and he couldn’t find me because I had to excuse myself. Wow, what “good news.”

After having my second child (8.5 lb), living with it meant that I was afraid to leave my house and was raising my children from the bathroom.

Working was a nightmare as I would have to excuse myself from client meetings not just once but several times and it is really hard to come up with enough polite excuses.

My solution was basically not to eat whenever I knew we were going somewhere or if I had any sort of meeting.

I was an emotional roller coaster and it was affecting my job and more importantly, my family.

I was desperate.

Then I found [the IBS Treatment Center]. In tears, my husband and I decided we needed to come up with the money for me to make the trip from Minnesota to Seattle.

The wheels were in motion. I made the trip to Seattle to visit the clinic. After my visit, we discussed my results over the phone rather than have to fly back out to Seattle.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t angry with every doctor I had ever seen before. I was shocked and embarrassed to say the least.

Shortly after starting my treatment plan, we found out we were expecting our third child and I had such a wonderful pregnancy!

We have gone on vacation, I have volunteered at school, taken my kids to amusement parks, and the list goes on and on!

Thank you,

Meredith ~ Minnesota

*Last year at this time a 5 mile easy bike ride was daunting. Now I am racing my bike twice a week.

Jamie ~ Washington

I’ve been waiting … until I had more consistent results to report. After 6 months or so I finally have been able to truly say that I am doing it and the results are phenomenal.

I am healthier, and fitter than I have been in years. Last year at this time a 5 mile easy bike ride was daunting.

Now I am racing my bike twice a week. Thanks to you all for finally offering objective data to prove I wasn’t just a loon.

Jamie ~ Washington

*I have suffered for over 8 years with undiagnosed gastrointestinal problems and a range of minor and seemingly unrelated symptoms. I went through the typical experience of numerous doctors, invasive testing and unproductive treatments. ... my symptoms have improved dramatically along with the quality of my life. Thanks again to you and your team for all your help.

Chad ~ Bangkok, Thailand

Dr. Wangen and his team have made a huge improvement in my health and quality of life.

I have suffered for over 8 years with undiagnosed gastrointestinal problems and a range of minor and seemingly unrelated symptoms.

After enduring in silence for a number of years only to have my symptoms get worse, I finally sought treatment.

I went through the typical experience of numerous doctors, invasive testing and unproductive treatments. I was finally put on Zelnorm, and had basically concluded that despite the impact on my work and social life, there was nothing I could do except put up with it.

It was about then that my wife found the IBS Treatment Center website. I was skeptical and wondered how it would work given that he was in Seattle and I was in Southeast Asia, but decided to give it a try.

What first impressed me was their sincere desire to listen and try to understand what was going on with me. After listening to my symptoms, asking questions and reviewing my medical records, he made his recommendations to solve my problem.

Through e-mail and conference calls, they worked with me, explaining that … little by little my symptoms should improve. And that is basically what happened. … my symptoms have improved dramatically along with the quality of my life.

I have been very happy with Dr. Wangen and his team in Seattle. They show a genuine concern for the patient and look to resolve problems, not just treat the symptoms.

I have found them to be highly responsive, genuine and professional – the way the medical profession should be.

I am especially grateful to them for having the dedication to work with me over an extended period to ensure that all my problems are resolved.

Thanks again to you and your team for all your help.

*The third year was the worst with a ER visit every other week because I had severe stomach pain to the point where I couldn't even walk. I've seen at least 6 different GI doctors who seem to tell me that I have to live with it.

Renee Lisko ~ Hartford, Wisconsin

My problems started 4 years ago with stomach pain and constipation. The first year wasn’t that bad but it then continued to get worse. I would go over a week being constipated and on/off stomach pain/nausea.

The third year was the worst with a ER visit every other week because I had severe stomach pain to the point where I couldn’t even walk. I’ve seen at least 6 different GI doctors who seem to tell me that I have to live with it.

I thought they finally figured it out when they took my gallbladder out but the pain and problems never stopped afterwards. I thought I was going to lose it and my husband too.

We didn’t know what to do anymore and I was starting to believe it was all in my head.

The day my husband came to me and told me about [the IBS Treatment Center], I thought he was crazy. We live in Wisconsin so to take a trip across the states to Washington was out of the question.

I figured if the doctors around my area can’t fix me why travel and have the same response and tests. When I finally had taken every test possible I really had no choice so I looked at [the IBS Treatment Center] website and read the whole thing.

I was then convinced they might be able to help me. The next week we left to see him. After a year … I can now say I am great. I finally have my life back which I never thought was possible.

Dr. Wangen and his staff were so helpful through the whole process and never gave up on me.

Renee Lisko ~ Hartford, Wisconsin

*After 13 different doctors, I was getting very discouraged and had the terrible feeling that something awful was happening. Then I heard about [the IBS Treatment Center]. I said to my husband I know it sounds crazy but I think I need to go to Seattle to see this doctor. He said do what you need to do. The doctor exceeded my expectations. I feel like a new person. My family and I are so grateful to Dr. Wangen and his team!

Cynthia ~ New York

I am a nurse practitioner in New York that suddenly became ill 3 years ago with throat swelling and severe reflux.

My symptoms changed and worsened over 2 years to include not only the ongoing swelling and reflux but also throat pain and burning.

This progressed to my mouth feeling burned every day, my lips were even chapped. I had lymph nodes enlarged in my neck and was found to have an enlarged thyroid.

After a right Thyroidectomy I continued to have the same symptoms. I also had abdominal pain and heartburn at times as well. I was losing weight. It became difficult to work my 12 hour shifts because of my fatigue.

After 13 different doctors, 5 different proton pump inhibitors at high doses, plus Zantac and multiple bottles of Mylanta I was getting very discouraged and had the terrible feeling that something awful was happening.

My family went through a huge amount of stress worrying about me. I felt like the health field and my body was failing me.

Then I heard about [the IBS Treatment Center]. I said to my husband I know it sounds crazy but I think I need to go to Seattle to see this doctor. He said do what you need to do.

My daughter and I flew to the IBS Treatment Center in December of 2007. The doctor exceeded my expectations. He listened intently to my saga. He really cared about what was happening to me and tailored a plan of care for my individual needs.

He was the first person to start me healing with treatments that were soothing. I stopped all my other medications.

They did a wonderful job teaching me what I had to do and have since been very attentive in helping me fine tune things.

I feel like a new person. My family and I are so grateful to Dr. Wangen and his team! I can’t imagine what would have happened to me without them!

*I had IBS for years and had learned to just 'live with it.' I had been through all the standard tests and treatments with a wonderful gastroenterologist but I was getting worse. Then my husband heard about the IBS Treatment Center on National Public Radio. I was skeptical but desperate. I booked my appointment the next day. Today I am 100% better.

Colleen Prisock ~ Bellevue, Washington

The IBS Treatment Center changed my life. I had IBS for years and had learned to just ‘live with it’ but by the Fall of 2007 I was having bouts of terrible stomach pain and heartburn that would last for days.

Nothing gave me relief. I had been through all the standard tests and treatments with a wonderful gastroenterologist but I was getting worse. I needed help and I did not know where to turn. Traditional medicine had nothing more to offer me.

Then my husband heard about the IBS Treatment Center on National Public Radio. I was skeptical but desperate. I checked out the website. I saw a diagnostic and treatment philosophy on that site that made tremendous sense to me.

I booked my appointment the next day. It was expensive but I had little choice. It was my last hope. Together we quickly found out that I … had caused so much inflammation that my whole digestive system was wrecked.

All the antacids I had taken, both over the counter and prescription, had made matters much worse. In less than two weeks I was free of the terrible bouts of stomach pain.

Slowly I started to feel better but I still took my antacid prescription. I was afraid to stop it. About three months ago I returned for a follow up. I was 80% better. Life was good. But I was still taking the antacids and wanted to get off them.

[They helped me with this too.] Today I am 100% better. I can’t say enough good things about [the IBS Treatment Center].

Colleen Prisock ~ Bellevue, Washington

*I am a 50 year old female who was suffering from debilitating (IBS) symptoms for a number of years. Dr. Wangen and the entire team were Always very sympathetic, willing to help in any possible way, they all really made a difference in the way I live my life now.

Alina ~ Irvine, California

I am a 50 year old female who was suffering from debilitating (IBS) symptoms for a number of years. Initially the discomfort was mild, but gradually it got worse.

The headaches, dizziness and other symptoms (associated with it) reached the level that interfered with normal life and would not let me to work.

Gastroenterologists that I turned to for help would aknowledge my problem, but could not really offer anything to help.

Dr. Wangen and the entire team in contrast were extremely helpful during the process of detecting the causes of my health problems and on the way of my recovery.

Always very sympathetic, willing to help in any possible way, they all really made a difference in the way I live my life now.

They are very knowledgable, very careful, considerate, and patient. You can see right away that they know their subject very deeply, (and) always provides lots of useful information.
