I just got a referral for 3 different endocrinologists. I would love some input/advice on questions to ask the practice before I'm seen. I want to make sure I have a doctor who will support my pump and the technology that goes with it.
Thanks in advance!
A couple of thoughts . . . My son has type 1 and one of the most important things to me is the appointment time allotment. I want to feel like I have enough time to explain my worries and not feel pressured about time. We have 45 minutes with her and I sometimes could still use more time. We also see her every 3 months which I think is vital at which time his pump is downloaded, we go over rates and we also get his A1c.
I'd suggest you contact your insulin pump representative and ask for his or her opinion on the three doctors -- they will be better able to tell you how much the docs know about the pump and how much of the functionality they utilize. The docs will all say they know everything about the pump ... because the stuff they don't know, they don't know about.
