    What is IBS and why is achieving an accurate diagnosis important for your patients? Health communications professional Mario Nacinovich, Jr., MSc, Managing Partner at AXON Communications, hosts a discussion with recognized IBS expert Dr. Christine L. Frissora about these and other issues. In this interview sponsored by Quest Diagnostics, Dr. Frissora discusses the burden of IBS in the US, including its affect on quality of life for patients, as well as the diagnostic challenges associated with differentiating IBS from other diseases, such as celiac disease.
