    Overall is interested in providing care and is focused on helping you manage diabetes better. Not condescending and discusses goals that make sense offering support and help. Access to him is good except first appointment. Could be better about follow up, leaves voice mail but would be better to get time on calendar to talk. He's as busy as I am, I'm not waiting by the phone either. No reason for phone tag.
