    He seemed to focus on diabetes meds where I was concerned about meds I was taking for hypoparathyroidism. When I came in for a blood draw on Monday prior to this appointment, no orders were waiting so they didn't know what tests to order. They took extra blood but Thursday night I was called to come in for another blood draw for different tests. I filled in a depression survey on line prior to my appointment, but I didn't get the feeling that he had seen it. I am increasing my meds, after decreasing them after we last met. He did take great care in making sure which RX went to which pharmacy. (I have some mail order and some delivered locally).

    This visit, as always, was very good. He asked questions about my surgery and reviewed all my medications. he stopped one that I no longer need. I am always glad to eliminate any medication.the visit was great!
