Will never leave the Vanderbilt network

Connie is awesome and a very valuable asset to Vanderbilt Diabetes Clinic. She is so knowledgeable with any thing about insulin and pumps and all that goes with taking insulin. Any time I email her a question about my situation, she is always quick to respond and has a great solution.
Patient | August 28, 2018

She was excellent. She didn't even have to work me in but she did!
Patient | August 22, 2018

I love Miss Connie Root! She is the best! I recommend her to many people, family and friends. she has helped me so much over the past seven years. I don't really know if I could have made it without her! She is caring, compassionate, and very knowledgeable about what she does.

This appt. could have easily been handled over the phone. I live an hour away and this appt. was not really needed. No tests needed.

Connie Root is an asset to the diabetic department @ Vanderbilt.

I did bring other issues I was having but there was no follow up since my labs came back ok

Connie Root is very knowledgeable in her job. I trust her completely with my pump settings, things I need to do as a type 2 diabetic that is insulin dependent. I know she cares about her patients.

I've been seeing Connie Root for years. I hope I continue to see her.
Patient | May 1, 2018

Great experience.
Patient | April 19, 2018

care provider called me next day with test results saying I needed further test. I emailed her on My Health but did not receive answer for almost a week
Patient | February 13, 2018

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!

Ms Connie Root was very friendly and helped to explain things to me without panic or extreme concern. I understood the severity of my situation.
