We were with her for over a year for our daughters type 1 diabetes. We never got the feeling that she cared at all. The level of medical care was much lower than what we had received from our previous pediatric endocrinologist.
What went well
  • Office environment
What could be improved
  • Long wait times
  • Appointment was rushed
  • Didn't listen or answer questions
  • Didn't explain conditions well
  • Didn't trust the provider's decisions
