Dr. Philip Stein gives tips about how an IBD patient can transition from a pediatric doctor to an adult physician.
  • Overview

    The majority of adolescents with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) will transition from a pediatric to an adult specialist. This process can be daunting, especially if patients are not ready to take control of their health care. However, with the right communication and preparation, the transition can be smooth for the patient, parent, and physician. Host Dr. Adam Ehrlich joins Dr. Philip Stein, a pediatric gastroenterologist at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, to discuss how physicians can best prepare patients to transition and overcome potential difficulties.
