I feel that this visit was more me explaining what has been going on to her instead of the other way around; however, Connie is a new care provider to me so I felt it was best to give her benefit of the doubt and bring her up to speed on my concerns. I think that my next appointment will go much more smoothly as a result.

Connie Root has seen to me throughout my experience with Eskind Diabetes Clinic and I cannot recommend her highly enough! She has been unflagging in her care, support, and cheerleading efforts while I have brought diabetes II under control and I have begun to be able to drop some medication as a result! She is a jewel in VU's crown!

I am moving to a new drug; however, the CRNP was unfamiliar and really didn't want to help me understand how it might impact me. Too focused on tests to take.
