[IPp] Endo pracitices

I was wondering if some of you would let me know what a standard time lapse
there is between your childs appointments were.  My daughters next
appointment is 8 months after her last appointment.  I started looking into
changing endos.   The problem: Because of her age, the regular endos will
not take her, it has to be a pediatric endo.  And as it turns out, there is
only one clinic in the whole state (which only has 2 endos and one pump
nurse, but a slew of diabetic nurses and other nutrition specialists, etc).
That would explain why it is so difficult to actually talk to someone and
why her appointments are so far apart.  Does anyone else experience this?  I
had read somewhere that she should be seeing a doctor every 3 or 4 months.
Is that true?  Im dont know what to do, short of traveling out of state to
a different endo.
