Dr. Shewbridge has been my care provider for around 30 years. He was the 4th doctor which I tried for treatment of my diabetes and he diagnosed me properly--Type I--all of the other physicians had thought I was Type II because of my age! Appreciate his help all of these years.

Underestimated my concerns over extreme low & high blood sugars when Caresource changed my insulin from Novolog to their generic Novolog. Would like CCF MEDINA to make a computer accessible to patients to download blood sugar readings once a month. I cannot get my Novolog insulin until July 1st. Doctors have to advocate for patients when insurance companies interfere with my doctor patient relationship. Aren't enough hours in the day for doctors to chase after insurance companies. Rather do a more in depth analysis like your physical therapy department does with their questionnaire. CCF & UH both have terrible phone systems, don't blame staff for that!!!

Reviewed on Jun 17, 2020

Up against a brick wall when insurance companies tie my doctors hands. I had the best A1c in February & Caresource ruined that by changing my insulin that caused erratic blood sugars. I almost had to call EMS twice from extreme highs & lows since being forced to use generic Novolog.

Dr Shewbridge's team is great, been going to them for many years. He noticed I lost a few pounds, but your printout shames us for being in the wrong BMI range. It would be nice if your printouts said: "Congratulations on moving towards your weight loss goal, keep up the good work" & what can we do to keep you motivated? It is extremely difficult for Type 1 diabetics to safely lose weight.
