Hey all. I just found this group after returning to Tu Diabetes after an absence. I was wondering if anyone has an Endo that they love? I like mine but he isn't really that interested in the technology side of things and he tends to lecture rather than listen... Also I am thinking I just need a change as our visits tend to be the same and i am not improving my A!C's any longer. I am starting to get complications but he doesn't see them as his problem.

If anyone has any recommendations of endos or other diabetes professionals in Vancouver that would be lovely!

Hi Vanessa! Dr. Clarissa Wallace in New Westminster is wonderful. I drive there from Mission (1+ hours) and would from twice as far :) Check out www.ratemds.com for patient-based reviews of Vancouver area doctors.

YES!!! I AGREE!! she is AMAZING! out of the 3 endo's iv seen Dr. Wallace is by far the greatest endo ever! she cares asks for your opinion on choices and options that come up. She loves what she does and i think she would be perfect from the sound of the pickle your in! :D

I used to be a lower mainland gal ...and Clarissa was my Endo ...highly recommend her !!
Hey Vanessa! I know you poted this a year ago, but thought I would still reply. I completely understand about not having the greatest confidence in your healthcare team. I have tried a variety of endos, GPs etc. here in Vancouver. In November, I finally got a team together that I trust. Dr. Tildesley at St. Paul's is now my endo and I do feel that he is helping me.

I too started developing complications a few years ago.
