"I don’t want the government pressuring my doctor to use medicines that
they see as fit. I want my doctor to be the judge of what’s best for my
health." COMPLETELY agree on this point. The patient-doctor relationship is one that needs to be upheld. Are these government officials dealing with Crohn's themselves? Doubtful. Please continue to post.

Also, what do you think of mobile relationships with your doctor? I'm curious, as with the recent transition to everything digital.
