I was recently told I had Crohn's disease from a one-time incident that landed me in the local hospital. I was put on medication (2 pills, 3 times daily) and was told I'd probably be on them for the rest of my life. Even after taking the medication for 2 months, I was still having pain, which didn't seem to make sense. I contacted a close friend who recommended Dr. Egan. I was scheduled for an appointment and for the first time in my life, the Dr. was in the examination room with me at that exact time, what a shock! Obviously something I'm not used to. His immediate thought was that I didn't look like someone that had Crohn's disease and wanted to verify what he thought. By 9 am the next morning, I was back in the clinic, having a procedure and pretty much verified that there was nothing wrong with me. In doing so, suggested I stop taking the medication I was prescribed. Within 2 to 3 days of discontinuing the medication, I felt like I had before my initial problem (which was most likely an infection...that I almost lost my entire colon over). Its as if there was never anything wrong. The professionalism, speed and quality of care I received was beyond anything I expected. From this day forward, unless immediately life threatening, I will be traveling to Santa Barbara for my medical needs. Thank you Dr. Egan and Sansum Clinic!
