It does not matter if the doctor is familiar with one pump and not the
other... THEY BOTH OPERATE THE SAME MEDICALLY SPEAKING!!!! They both have a
basal and they both bolus, the only difference is which buttons you push on
which model. So he should treat you the same no matter which pump. Don't ever
let him say I am unfamiliar with that pump... because both companies have
field reps that will come to town and teach you AND YOUR DOCTOR all about the
pump and it's operation ... usually for free.
