    Dr. Hsiao is an excellent doctor who is very professional knowledgeable and cares about her patients. She is experienced but we only have time to address my tests since doctors are on limited time. It never use to be like this and your doctors were concerned about treating the whole body so if they notiiced something they would refer a patient to the specific specialist.

    Just added another med to what I have already for diabetes 2 since I don't want to finger stick myself twice a day. Insist I use insulin which I told primary doctor I don't want. Says there is no other way to get an accurate count of A1C.
