Dr. Amaro @ Universiy of Penn is fantastic. She battled with Medicare for my CGM. She become aEndo after her sister died from T1 complications. I belong to a pump group @ Hospital of the University of Penn.

I love Gary Scheiner. He is helping me organize a chapter of Diabetes Sisters in our area. If you are a woman looking for support by others in our area contact me at It will be a group that meets monthly with great topics that both educates and bonds us together.

we've had Gary several times for live events here, in fact he's coming up soon for another one, so mark your calendars

Brianna, I would definitely recommend Gary I've known him for more then 15 years....I call him my Godsend...Gary saved my life when I really needed help. Gary has been in business for over 20 years and he himself is a long time Type 1.

I go to Dr. Ahmed at Jeffeson. I have seen Cheryl Marco (the CDE that Lex mentioned) and she is very good. Betty, I have been thinking about making an appt with Gary Scheiner (more convenient bc they have evening hours). Would you recommend him/his practice?

Comment by Betty J on May 8, 2014 at 9:47am

Also forgot to tell you I go to Dr. Jeffrey Miller at Jefferson...also my CDE is the infamous Gary Scheiner who is located just outside of Philly.

We'll be in Philly May 13th thru 18th - gotta find a place to live and I gotta do interviews while I'm there. Have had a few suggestions on places to live, but essentially Center City area with easy access to Metro for boyfriend - I'll likely be driving/commuting to my job that way... Thanks for the info!

@Palomino I live in Philly and I go to Dr.Kevin Furlong at Jefferson University Hospital. He is beyond amazing.I also see Cheryl Marco the diabetes educator there..She's pretty awesome also!! Where are you moving to!! I love it here!
