Endocrine Issues in Pregnancy,
Dr. Blomeier is a patient and understanding doctor with great knowledge of my issues.
Dr. Blomeier is an excellent endocrinologist and knowledge and caring physician. I am fortunate that he is part of my care team.
Dr Blomeier is very knowledgeable and patient in my treatment regimen
The Dr and Nutritionist I saw after, seem to practice from a script. The Dr didn't have my results of my glucose tolerance test, but I took a guess at what I could remember. There seemed to be no record of my pre-pregnancy weight, either. There is a standard treatment for GDM, that they essentially read off. I tried to explain the different way I handled my GDM in my first pregnancy, and instead of a conversation I got nods. There was no working with me on alternative diets to handle my blood sugar. I did research on my own, very similar to the last pregnancy, with great results. I had a healthy baby boy, now 2.5, never needed insulin, and he was born average weight, no jaundice or any complications because I was able to keep my sugar down. But there is no need to pay a Dr. If I'm going to handle it myself. I also had an issue with the prescribed monitor, and giving me false high readings at first. This was different to the monitor given to me at the office, and I had never used it before. Why spend time teaching me to use one monitor and then prescribe me another. She said she went with whatever was included in my insurance, but didn't bother to mention that it would be different at first. Not only that, she wasn't concerned that the numbers were at least 10 to 15 points higher than the true numbers. Claiming it was about trends not numbers. However, at those high numbers I would have been put on Insulin in a matter of weeks. At that point, I cancelled my next appointment and will not be going back. The Dr, who I assume has access to these message through North Shore Connect, didn't bother to respond or chime in at all. Now I am again left to manage my GDM on my own, and so far so good. However as my pregnancy progresses, if I am unable to control my sugar with my diet & exercise, I will find a new Endocrinologist to treat me with Insulin. I have no confidence in the team I saw.
Always very pleased with Dr. Blomeier
Hesitation I have to recommend my doctor to others is difficulties in making an appointment.
I have already recommended him to others
Dr. Blomeier is very good at listening to the patient and works well in providing pro-active medical care.
