I've been a Type 1 diabetic for over 40 years and have had extraordinary good fortune with my diabetes physicians, from day 1 of my diagnosis. Recently, however, this has changed radically for the worse. Whether one cares to blame the structure of hospitals, or the manner in which Insurance pays physicians on staff of hospitals these days, I've had 2 very fine endocrinologists in succession leave the practice and move over to Big Pharma. The latest doctor I'm seeing seems sorely overburdened, tries to keep office visits as short as possible (profit in volume, perhaps?) and seems put-upon when asked to engage in any conversation relating to my diabetes.
SO: would anyone in New York City care to make recommendations for an endocrinologist who might relate to their patients more like human beings and less like a commodity? I'd be interested in any insights any of you would care to offer, and I thank you all in advance.
