A couple of months ago I found out I have to switch endocrinologists due to my current insurance dropping that hospital and network of doctors, ugh! I have to admit I am not a big fan of going to the endo mostly because it often feels like I’m being criticized. And who likes criticism? No matter how contructive it is. But this doctor has a totally different approach which I find so refreshing. He takes his time to explain things to me, asks my opinion and actually writes down what he wants me to do and gives me a copy before I leave the office.
How many times have you left the doctors office and went home and thought did he say change my carb ratio to 10 or 8 at dinner time? Or you go to the doctor and they come in and spend two minutes in the room with you, bark a couple of orders at you and then they are gone? Or maybe they are in the room longer than two minutes but you try to ask a question and it’s shot down before you get the whole question out? I’ve been through each and every one of them and probably a couple more I’ve forgotten.
My point is I hate having to switch since it took so long for me to find one that I really like. I’ve got a couple of recommendations from some diabetics friends so let’s hope that works out. Wish me luck and many blessings.
