I don't think you'll find a better doctor than Dr. Christy Richardson at DePaul Medical Group (314) 209 - 5180. She's been MY doctor for about 8-10 years and I have worked for her as a nurse/CDE. Right now it's about a 4 month wait for an appointment, but it's worth it. Phones are always busy, but she will give you all the time you need.

I am searching for a new Endocrinologist in the St Louis area and I am looking for recommendations. Please tell me the doctor you go to if you have been more than satisfied with him or her. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks, JOE

Hey! I've been a member for awhile now but haven't been actively signing on tudiabetes. Lately I've been yearning to talk and relate with others with diabetes. (I noticed an email from tudiabetes regarding Wilson1926's comment the other day and it reminded me that I am already registered to a "facebook" of diabetics!) So, thanks Michael! lol :)

Good Morning All. I very recently joined and didn't know there was a St. Louis group. It's nice to meet you all

jm is right, it was a great first meeting of STL Dawn Phenom. I'm a T2 & I recommend it highly.

We had our first STL Dawn Phenom group meeting for diabetics and athletes in the st louis area...and we had 22 people with diabetes and interested in learning more about ways to manage your sugars during exercise. Everybody participated and shared experiences and then listened to some good talks about Dexcom CGM and how Gary Schmidt calculated his insulin and carbs and calories during a half ironmanl...hopefully we will have more athletes at our next meeting

Hi all...yes, Tamara I would be interested in getting together w/ folks. Jeanne and I met back in Oct or so at a bookstore and it was great. Coffee and discussion and trying to "light up the Arch". I am a T1 for 30 years and always learn so much from talking w/ others. If we can set a date and place, I will come:) There is a support group that some of those posting here are part of and I have never been able to make the date...maybe they would be interested as well. Take care! Enjoying the great weather yesterday and today:)

Hi all,
The metro St. Louis group seems a little bit inactive. I would love to get together with some other diabetics (I'm type 1, but type 2 also!!!) for dinner or something. It'd be great to share some stories and get some feedback on all kinds of issues! Anyone up for planning an outing?
By the way, Patricia, I haven't been on this site for a while and didn't see your request for doctor recommendations last October. BUT, if you're still looking for a good endocrinologist, Dr. Janet McGill at Wash U has to be one of the best in the region...if not the country. The only problem is she has kind of limited hours (office hours two days a week, I believe). But, she will do whatever is needed for her patients. She even came down to the ER late one night when I had a severe hypoglycemia incident!
