I really liked Pooja herself. Very easy to talk to, BUT, not very informative and helpful on any dietary advice and is very very bad about getting back to me ; the staff there is nice, except for Wendy; she has absolutely no bedside manners on the phone. When she is with Pooja, it's a different story; the office is not organized, because that I had to go fetching my information from my primary care and my imaging, because they didn't have it, meanwhile, it had already been faxed to the office;

Nice,but controlling. I've had T1D for 50 years, worn a pump for 10. My control of the disease could be improved, but treated me like a child. Didn't want me adjusting rates on my pump without consulting her first. 99.9% of pump users do this. In the market for a new pump,Told to only use Medtronic. Should be my choice. Chastised my printed blood glucose readings. Wanted me in frequently. $ Didnt address my concerns. Would not refil meds other endos had prescribed. Young, idealistic
