Cynthia S. Rudert, M.D., F.A.C.P., is a board-certified gastroenterologist in Atlanta, Georgia with over 25 years experience screening and treating celiac disease. With one of the largest practices in the United States that manages adults and teenagers with celiac, she has diagnosed and 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 often treats patients from all areas of the United States for second opinion consults and all gastrointestinal disorders. Her focus is identifying the core causes of gastrointestinal issues with a comprehensive evaluation, enabling her to treat underlying medical conditions which may have previously been undetected. She then creates an individualized course of treatment tailored to each patient’s unique set of needs rather than treating only the symptoms of disease.
Dr. Rudert is Medical Advisor for the Celiac Disease Foundation, the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America, Medical Director of Atlanta Gluten Intolerance Group and the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO).

She was recently interviewed by multiple radio, T.V. and health publications. Dr. Rudert was the advising physician for the popular television series House, which featured a segment concerning celiac.
