Ranked as one of New York's top doctors, Philip Kazlow is a pediatric gastroenterologist whose knowledge of celiac disease stems in part from his affiliation with the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University (CDCCU).

Here is an interview with Dr. Kazlow from Chicago's Taped With Rabbi Doug. The discussion covers a range of subjects before settling on celiac disease late in the video, around the 25:20 mark.

Of special interest are Dr. Kazlow's remarks on symptoms and manifestations: He talks about twins who both have celiac disease even though only one had noticeable symptoms. He also recognizes gluten sensitivity as opposed to celiac disease, saying that people who test negative for celiac disease may still benefit from being on a gluten-free diet.
