I only saw Dr. Bratcher twice before I moved out of the area, but she was amazing. She listened to my concerns, and helped my A1C go from 10.6 to 9.2 in a little over a month. Also, y'all, she's a fellow t1 diabetic, and y'all know how rare that is. She didnt keep me there longer than necessary or waste my time, which I loved. She truly understands the struggle, and I wish that I had been able to bring her to CT with me!
