Sorry, just seeing this now. I compiled a list of 5-8 endos based on suggestions from the clinic I was previously going to. I ran them by my oncologist and got the list down to 4. 1 was knocked off the list because he did not take insurance. Then I called the offices and requested an appointment to ask some questions about their practices. 1 refused and I went to the other two. I choose the one that seemed the friendliest and most up to date on technology. Basically, I wanted someone willing to prescribe what I want even if he/she is not familiar and someone who is willing to work with me and not try to fit me into the standard insulin regimens if that makes sense. I originally planned on using this endo for only 3 years or so since I was planning at that point on moving to Chicago for a 7 year BA/MD program and figured during the last 4 years I would not really be visiting home. I ended up at a school in the Northeast though and I come home for 3-4 days about 3 times a year. I am actually now planning on attending med school in nyc so I could stick with this endo for the next 6 or so years. My suggestion would be to make the switch at least a year before college or plan to stick with the pediatric endo through college. The transition to college is not necessarily tough but "weird" (sorry can't think of another word to describe it...) and it helps to have someone who has a decent idea of your medical history. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions or are looking for an adult endo in the NYC area.
