My PCP referred me to Dr Liao as well, but she was so booked that her office manager referred me to someone else- Dr Nandi, who I have seen once and have not made up my mind about yet. My impression was that she doesn't have that much experience yet, which I'm trying to keep an open mind about. I am curious to hear about Dr. Liao and any other endo recommendations in NYC!

I am on a moderately low-carb diet (40-70 carbs/day) and I do not want an endo who is going to tell me to eat more carbs and take more insulin!

Hi, everyone. I'm new to this group/community, but have been T1 since 1980. I'm looking for a new endo/internist in Manhattan to replace my much-beloved doctor who died last April. I'm now on my third )o: I have an appt with Dr. Emilia Liao. Does anyone on the list have experience with her?

Hi everyone! If you are looking for local adults with Type 1 to meet in person, check out ACT1 (Adults Coping with Type 1) right now we have three seperate support groups. I love when new people join because new perspectives are always welcome.
