    My wife and I both went to see Dr. La Cava on separate occasions and we would not recommend this doctor. He told my wife after two pregnancies with twins that she doesn't have anything wrong and she just needs to do more SIT UPS. Well as it turns out she had GI issues including SIBO, IBS, and gallbladder problems. He told me that I didn't have any hormone issues yet three other doctors all diagnosed me with adrenal and testosterone and other disorders. He and his associates are horrible!

    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.
