Happy to help. =^)
The Gonda/Goldschmiede center is UCLA (Westwoods) main diabetes center. I read someplace that it was highly recommended, although, I can't seem to find the link now. I've been with them for some 15 years and don't have any major complaints. It actually looks like those two Endos I mentioned are at SM as well. Bare in mind I haven't seen these Docs myself, but did look up reviews on them while searching for a new Endo.
Here is UCLA-SM endocrinology:

Thank you! I appreciate your suggestions. Have a wonderful new years weekend!
