I've been diabetic for about three years now. In that time, I've seen doctors at Sansum Clinic to work with me on managing my diabetes, and while those doctors have all been just fabulous and a great resource, it's really nice to have an educator. It's nice to sit down with someone and talk about the concerns I have. It's one-on-one, and Lyda makes me feel so comfortable in being able to ask questions. I've seen some advertisements for diabetes-related products on television, and I'll always ask Lyda about those. Well, she always has those products right there in her office, so she'll get it and I can always see it right then and there; then we'll decide together if that product is a good option for me, or if there might be a healthier option.
She's always very encouraging; she encouraged me to use a glucose monitoring system, which I really enjoyed. Then she switched me over to a pump, and now I love it! She's like a cheerleader. She's always so positive and supportive. I see her every three months, and I always leave with information I needed, all of my questions answered, and feeling really positive about managing my diabetes. We live three hours away from Sansum Clinic, but I've always had such amazing care under the doctors, and seeing Lyda every three months is well worth the drive. I can't imagine going anywhere else.
