RE: [IP] doc search....



Finding an endo is not easy.  I have had 2 wonderful ones.  One I found
through a newspaper article on diabetes.  The other I found through a
referral from my primary care dr.  They were friends at Emory.  Anyway,
it's a scary thing to put (literally) your life in someone's hands.

Yes, I have a wonderful doctor that way.  She always says to me "so,
what do
you want to do next?"  Margaret
