Like "I know that the docs do return all calls after hrs. if you either belong to a ppo or a private MD. However, I belong to an HMO, which means they either call you when they get a chance, send you an email. (at Kaiser which is where I belong) they don't have receptionist. So, since I have an appt. in a couple of weeks then I'll see what the he wants me to do. All I can say is that I cannot be put on insulin. It plummets my sugars to the point where I know the paramedics on a 1st name basis."
