Important Research Study
We have initiated a groundbreaking study exploring how beliefs of patients with IBS, beliefs of their partners and their relationship satisfaction are connected to IBS symptoms.

Here are the important features of this study.
  • It is a questionnaire study.
  • Everything is conducted over the internet.
  • All results are strictly anonymous; there is no way of connecting questionnaire results to individuals. An independent company uses secure methods to process the questionnaires.
  • All that is required is for patients to complete 5 questionnaires and partners to complete 3 questionnaires. This should take from 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Every completion of questionnaires is rewarded with a choice of a specially chosen meditation program or a book about IBS.
  • This study has been approved by Mt. Sinai Hospital's Institutional Review Board.
If you are willing to participate, please send an e-mail to with e-mail addresses of patient and of partner. We will then send specific instructions to each of you
