Dr Fakunle has very poor bedside manner and does not listen to her patients. She has very limited understanding of people living with Type 1 diabetes nor does she have empathy. She is not willing to use technology such as continuous glucose monitor results to make adjustments to doses preferring to superficially look at average 1c results to make changes. Her office staff are not well trained and communications by fax and email always go unanswered.

Dr Fakunle is a patient, well informed doctor. She takes time to discuss your care & options for your care! I would recommend her to any newly or an "older" diagnosed diabetic!

My experience is always positive with Dr. Fakunle. She has a compassion for people and goes beyond her natural Dr.responsibility. She truly cares for her patients and anything that would hinder their treatment and healing process. I feel blessed having her as my physician!
