05/07/07 4 5 2 2 As a new diabetic, he was SO concerned with me that he said just after diagnosing me with Type II diabetes, that he'd see me in 3 months. He wanted me to eat ONLY wt watcher meals which are hugh no-no for diabetics. I understand he was concerned with getting my weight down but he nor his office staff ever weighed me so how would they know if I lost anyway? Being newly diagnosed with diabetes, I was having problems with what I could and could not eat. I asked about seeing a nutritionist and he flat out said "no, because they will tell you to eat more and you'll gain." That was on the top of the list with my new physician. He also wrote scripts but did not note them in the chart so when my perscription company had to call to ask if I could have generic, the staff had no clue what to tell them because he didn't even note in the chart that he gave me anything (and their were 4!)
