Re: [IP] Doctors resistant to pumps

Hello Nancy.
My experience is that most primary care docs do not have  a complete
understanding about diabetes, the interest to develop what it takes, the
patience to do what is involved, the educated staff to delegate to and
sufficient patients to get involved and develop the experience.  However I
agree there should be some knowledge to be able to make the appropriate
referral and to be able to intercede if needed  on specific occasions.
