So this past year my insurance changed and I found myself out of an HMO and into a private practice for my primary care. I have not exactly been a model diabetic, but decided I needed to get serious and take charge. I researched my options for doctors and I came upon a practice that specialized in diabetes management. My first visit was a good/bad one. The nurse practicioner was very serious but caring. When I told her who my insurance/care was with before she cursed! She was angry and that was encouraging. After changing some meds and dosages, she set me up an appointment to see their nutrionist for an hour one on one and 3 group classes. I went friday and my numbers were not great to say the least (A1c of 11.5) I have had it down to as low as 7 before). I now have some hope and a lot of support and working on knowledge. I actually seem hopeful now. I'm not going to advertise the Dr. here,b ut if anyone lived in Atlanta and is interested I will give you thier information.
