    I have been driving 5 hours to Austin to take Makaela to the endo and I finally found two pedi endos in Shreveport LA (which is 45 minutes from me). Dr Mcvie and Dr Reddy. Was just curious to if anyone had any remarks on these two drs before I decided to try em out!

    My cousin is type 1 and lived in Shreveport for a long time. I'll send an email to my aunt and see what they know about them. It may take a few days to get the info, but I'll pm it to you as soon as I can.

    Yes, I have heard of them both and used them. Dr. M is wonderful, but no longer taking new patients after a battle with cancer, plus he is getting up there in age. As for the other one, I don't have anything nice to say, so I will not say anything at all. My sister has also used her for her child and sadly feels the same way. I honestly cannot tell you that I know anyone who is happy there. Feel free to pm and I will be happy to tell you more.

    Are we allowed to talk about doctors in this forum? I was afraid to ask since I belong to other forums (nothing to do with diabetes) and the rules are so strict for those.

    I think it's fine to talk about docs here as long as what you say is true and doesn't slander them.

    Wow, Amanda, a 5 hour drive to Austin to see the endo?! I live just north of Austin and complain about having to drive into the city because of the traffic. :eek:

    Were you seeing Dr. S in Austin?

    Sorry for the late response, but my aunt says that Dr. Mcvie is "wonderful." So take it for what it's worth, but she would know.

    If you were driving 5 hours to Austin, how long is the drive to Houston? Texas Children's is fantastic here in Houston.
