Lewiston, ME |
I would NEVER recommend this incompetent doctor to ANYONE. In 2008, he diagnosed me with diabetes, told me I was type 2. Over and over again i BEGGED him to consider the OUTSIDE chance i might be type 1. He flatly refused, told me i was definitely type 2, but no matter what i did, it got worse and worse. In 2014 I went to an endocrinologist, who did a c peptide test and told me i was no type 2, i was most certainly a type 1. Since then, my a1c has never been over 6.5. Beware
