Use technique such as 

bysort pseudoid quarter primary : gen admissions_primary = _N
by pseudoid quarter : gen admissions_any_reason = _N 

l if primary == "560.9" & admissions_primary > 1

I am analyzing a data set containing de-identified patients with crohns disease or ulcerative colitis-UC admitted to the hospital over time .
A part of the dataset admitted for  is pasted below.( after removing the identifiers) 

It contains  

1)patients pseudoid( distinct for each person)-String variable 
2)Primary diagnosis crohns disease or ulcerative colitis)-numeric value(0/1)
3)age -Numeric value
4)Primary diagnosis (ICD9 code , string value) 
5)Secondary diagnosis (ICD9code, string value) 
6)admission over quarter of year( first-Q1;Second-Q2;third-Q3 and forth -Q4)-Numeric value(1,2,3,4)

Questions: 

1)How do I identify patients( and their age, diagnosis , associated secondary diagnosis) who had repeated admissions( Eg more than one admission) over each quarter of the year
2)How can I subset those patients 
3)Most common secondary diagnosis in patients with primary diagnosis of Crohns or ulcerative colitis
