What People Say About Dr. Cara O'Shaughnessey, DO
Reply
Told me i was wrong to match insulin intake to carbohydrate ratio. According to every other doctor and CDE ive spoken to that is exactly how one manages diabetes. She could cause serious harm to her patients as she pretends to specialize in diabetes yet knows nothing about it.

Spectacular results on lowering A1C from 9.7 to 5.9 in 3 months. A year later is still at 6.0. Comfortable to deal with.
