I finally found Dr. Curosh after years of getting crummy care for my diabetes. Thank God!

Been to OHSU. Impersonal, hard to get to, research oriented, bureaucratic and (except for Dr. Ahman) out of touch with reality. Maybe they should spend more on care and less on trams.
Went to all the other diabetes doctors on the east side. Can you say weird and anti-social?
Finally got referred to Dr. Curosh by a friend who works in a medical office. The doctor there goes to Dr. Curosh for his own care.

The office is small - only two employees and two exam rooms. They seem to put all of their effort into care rather than decor. I have type 2 diabetes and my sugars were all over the place. It took a while to get an appointment with Dr. Curosh, but now I know why. Everyone wants to see her apparently.

My first visit lasted an hour. She took a careful history, did an exam, and the did something no one else ever did. She explained exactly how diabetes works and why mine was different, and described all of the possible treatments and their advantages and disadvantages. I later found out that all of the medications that I'd been on were older, cheaper meds that weren't really the best for my particular case. (I'm sure the insurance company loved them, though.) She did an initial A1C (it was 10.8), checked for kidney damage and cholesterol.

Then she changed my medications and actually followed up to make sure that they were doing what they were supposed to. Changed my insulin. Changed it again until I got on something that both worked and I could live with. At this point my A1C is 6.6 and I feel so much better that it's not even funny. My primary care is astonished that my diabetes is finally under good control. (He actually told me that he didn't think that it was possible after all of the other endos I'd been to.) He sends all of his hard patients to Dr. Curosh now. Plus she's incredibly nice.
