Dr. Drossman holds a meeting each month to teach providers how to care for people with disorders of the gut-brain interaction (DGBIs, formerly functional gastrointestinal disorders or FGIDs). This past month, we were lucky enough to have three patients, who have found relief from their disorders, discuss what made a difference for them. This video can show patients how to speak with their doctors about their disorders and how providers can communicate more effectively to achieve better results.
