Cynthia S. Rudert, M.D., F.A.C.P., is a board-certified gastroenterologist in Atlanta, Georgia, whose practice is primarily devoted to the screening and following of patients with celiac disease. With one of the largest practices in the United States that manages adults and teenagers with celiac, she has evaluated over 1000 patients with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. Committed to educating the public, patients, and physicians about this commonly missed disorder, Dr. Rudert lectures throughout the United States and Canada on celiac disease. She also lectures on inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, pancreatic exocrine insufficiency, and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.

Dr. Rudert sees patients from all over the United States for second-opinion consults on a variety of gastrointestinal disorders. Dr. Rudert’s focus is identifying the core causes of gastrointestinal issues with a comprehensive evaluation, enabling her to treat underlying medical conditions that may have previously been undetected. Dr. Rudert then creates an individualized course of treatment tailored to each patient’s unique set of needs. Rather than treating just the symptoms of disease, Dr. Rudert believes the best results are achieved by getting to the core cause of the problem and treating the disease accordingly.

Dr. Rudert is Medical Advisor for the Celiac Disease Foundation, the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America, and for the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO). She is Medical Director for Atlanta Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG), and founder and president of the Atlanta Women’s Medical Alliance, the largest alliance of female physicians in the United States. In demand as an expert in celiac disease, she was the keynote speaker for multiple programs including the New England Celiac Conference, co-hosted with the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard, and national GIG meetings. Dr. Rudert was the advising physician for the popular television series House which featured a segment concerning celiac. Dr. Rudert was a former assistant professor of medicine with Emory University.
