Dexcom Stock is Soaring

Dexcom stock soars, meanwhile quality of the service call centre sinks to new lows

BTW - I am definitely not a Jim Cramer fan

I bet they are. They is coming to the hospital.

Last time I called Dexcom for a sensor replacement I had to hold before they answered quite a while so I set up a call back. They were extremely nice but mentioned I can ask for a replacement online if I want next time and it might be easier. So this time I filled out a form, Then I got an automated response 3 days later…automated response taking 3 days??? Okay but it was about 15 questions I had to answer like serial number etc of which I had already supplied almost every one on the original form. And if I didn’t respond within 3 days it would be dropped as being solved…Sigh I fill it out and the next message said they are shipping me a replacement. So I guess it was easy, although a call is easy, once you are past being put on hold of course.

On another note I just saw a TV ad for Dexcom for specifically type 1 diabetics. Saving you from finger sticks!!! An ad geared towards type 1’s I was very surprised!!!

Hey marie, Someone told me to call first thing in the morning. That worked like a charm. No hold. But, I might have just gotten lucky. Shipping was rapid. Lucky break, maybe.

Hey Jim, did you see the article Marie posted about covid and diabetes? I bet that helps the dexcom stocks. @Marie20, you should post that article to Jim. He works in the hospital, I think. It would be nice to get his feedback. I’ll look and see if I can find your post. It was some days ago.

Here you go @mohee0001 and @Jim_in_Calgary

It looks like Covid might be causing diabetes

Last time I needed a replacement sensor I filled out the thing for a call back. Waited a while before they finally called, then the guy asked me a few questions, then said please hold and left me holding for probably at least 15 mins or more, then comes back on and says hold a gain, and after another 5 - 10 mins tells me he is sending me over to Tandem because they are supposed to handle failed sensors if used with the pump :neutral_face: . Then I had to wait a while for the Tandem person to answer and repeat most of the same info with them.

Now granted, usually it is pretty quick and easy when I have called Dexcom about failed sensors or applicators.

Waited two hours on hold Friday night. Waited another two hours this morning. Still unable to get through to anyone.

This is “A Product Support Request Form” not the request a call back form. (unless maybe they need too?)

I never had to hold or talk to someone, I just filled out the form. Got a reply by e-mail back to answer almost the exact same questions a few days later giving me 3 days to respond. I e-mailed back the answers and then I got an e-mail saying they were sending me a replacement.

Monday night they call back in response to response form I filled out Friday night. Not the 12 or 24 hour turnaround they mentioned, but it did happen eventually.

Are you using yours with the T:slim X2? I am wondering if that makes a difference. I had previously just got them from Dexcom, but like I said this last time they said I need to call Tandem if it isn’t a mechanical problem and is just a failed sensor.

No, I use Omnipod. But the Product Support Request Form never asks you that. Plus the questions they send you to answer don’t ask anything about that either. I literally never called or had a call back, just filled out the form. It’s just standard question, where, date, serial numbers etc. It is what the Dexcom rep recommended the last time I had called for a replacement and said it would be easier than holding.

And while it asks a good call back time, they never called. They just sent more questions, but all basic. But if in their system they know you have a Tslim, it might not work the same for you?
