First Marathon - need advice

Looking for a good Endocrinologist in Metro-Detroit

I just finished medical school (yay!) and am moving back to Michigan for my residency. I was diagnosed about a year ago and am training to run a half marathon this fall so I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good endo in the metro Detroit area, preferably one who has a lot of experience with type 1s. Hopefully one day that will be me! Thanks everyone : )See More
