RE: [IP] Paris France pump doctor

Hi Linda,

When i moved to Paris a year and a half ago, i phoned Minimed to ask
how to go about finding an endocrinologist in France.  They gave me the
name of one at Hopital St. Louis in the 10th Arrondissement of Paris. 
Not very close to Versailles, but it is worth a shot.  His name is Dr;
Hervi Leblanc and he is very good about pumps.

Your friend can also call one of the companys that actually does the
delivery and training of pumps (because in france the pump companies
cannot talk directly with patients).  She could call Vitalaire or


There is also a good hospital site to help locate doctors in the paris
area.  The great thing about france is you don't need to have a
referral to see a specialist.

Under "offre de soins" she can search for "services midicaux" or

I hope she finds a doctor who will be willing to work with her.  In
france, in general, doctors don't like to give to much power to the
patients, but this is slowly changing.

You are welcome to give her my email address if she wants to contact
