been having weird bowel movements for a while now

loose stools, diarrhea, u name it, I've had it, well I haven't had blood in the stool so that's good. I've had some abdominal pain as well, mostly on the right side. Id like to see a doctor, but what type of specialist do I go to for this? I would go to my primary MD, but she's a waste of time(put me on cipro for a UTI assuming I got an STD, which I didn't)

thanks in advance

Re: been having weird bowel movements for a while now

Cipro is a pretty standard antibiotic for UTIs. If you don't have confidence in the PCP and have any possibility to change, do it. (I finally did recently - with NOOOO regrets. Don't think I will even be embarrassed when I see the former guy, which I inevitably will.)

The best start would be your PCP. The specialist you might consult would be a gastroenterologist.
