Barbara is very knowledgeable about diabetes and explains disease processes well. Her only shortcoming might be that she is less-than-desirable at responding to your wishes on how to treat your disease and having respect for confidentiality about the information you give her.
I apologize for the delayed response to your review, I just learned of it today. Thanks so much for taking the time to share this important feedback with us. We take all patient concerns seriously and use the information to improve our care. I would like to learn more. Please send an email to -Andrew
