The first appointment we had at Children's Hospital of Upmc we ended up seeing Dr. De La Torre and he ended up performing a biopsy. We have heard stories of people who have Hirschprung disease and have bad experiences with it. I feel Dr. De La Torre knows what he is doing when it comes to treating Hirschprung disease.
