Why dont u just call in the front desk of the diabetic office and ask to speak to another educator or switch to another person. First time I met up with my diabetic counselor, I think she had a bad day or something or was rushing to go home because I think I was the last person she had to see. She seemed moody and didn't care to help me. 2nd time I went in, I saw a different younger lady, I asked her if she could be my main educator, she said she had a busy schedule so I said nevermind. 3rd time I went(was yesterday), I saw the first lady but she was nicer and more caring and was willing to answer all my questions.

Give it a few more days and if she's still not answering you, I would call the hospital and complain and ask for another educator. Having diabetes is already stressful enough and not having someone who knows about it and willing to help, is not there for you, its not worth it.
