In episode 4, we talked with Dr. Jacqueline Wolf, a pioneer in the field of women’s gastroenterology. She is a physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and is Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Her following has earned her praise as one of the “Top Doctors” by Boston Magazine, as well as listings in Who’s Who in America and Best Doctors in America guide.
In this interview, Wolf gives insight into her research on EDS and other connective tissue disorders and their correlation to GI symptoms and endometriosis. She also talks about colonoscopy safety, what she learned from her Ehlers-Danlos patients, and why she doesn’t want to hear doctors ever say, “Well, dear, it’s just your period.”
