I have type 1 diabetes - for 40 years. I know my body and its needs. Dr. DeAtkine is the first endocrinologist I've been to, and I've experienced many in my diabetes "career", who listens, discusses with me, and then considers options to find the best plan that works for me. He doesn't just listen, we have a conversation about the best treatment for me… See more
