Dr. Bertenshaw is one of the nicest, most caring doctors around. He spends lots of time with you and discusses many options. He really cares about his patients. I went through 2 other doctors who were horrible until I finally found the best. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!! Plus he wants whats best for you, not keeping insulin costs down for insurance companies. His staff is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
