If you want a doctor who is progressive and open minded-this is not the doctor to see. Dr. Softness has a one dimensional, the-Doctor-is-always right approach to diabetes care, which is outdated and frankly, ineffective. I would not recommend ribs Doctor.
Dr. Softness failed us on many levels. He thought he listened to us and understood us, but this is not the case.
