      As a type 1 diabetic, I've seen Dr. El-Choufi once in the past 3 years. I've had 8 appointments in these 3 years that have all been cancelled by her. I was out of refills so I called her nurse on Friday and was told they would order insulin immediately. It's Wednesday and not only has my pharmacy not heard from her, I'm out of insulin, and she's aware. I wish I knew my blood sugar, but I can't check it because for the 8th time, her nurse has called in the incorrect strips for my meter.
      While a great doctor, getting an appointment, even for established patient is almaost impossible. Would love to recommend, but rarely will people be able to get in.
