Appointment should be given at the fix time waiting for a long period without proper sitting arrangement is very painful for a patient like me having ulcer in foot. I wish doctor should give sufficient time to the patient.
I visited the doctor and I am satisfied with the doctor and doctor treatment. There was not much waiting time. When it comes to improvement, everything was good. I would like to recommend this doctor to others and the doctor's behaviour was very good.

I visited the doctor. I am a bit satisfied with the doctor. He is a good doctor and we went there with all tests and again he told us to do CT Scan and we can’t reject doctor words and now the patient is good. The doctor 's behaviour was good and he listened to our problem properly. We visited for hernia checkup and the previous doctor who did the surgery told us not to visit another doctor if your problem was solved but patient was having multiple problems and already I'm recommending this doctor to my family and friends for diabetes treatment.
Q: Who is a diabetologist?
A: A diabetologist is a doctor who diagnoses and treats diabetes and its complications. A diabetologist is an endocrinologist who specializes in treating diabetes. All endocrinologists treatthe conditions arising due to hormonal imbalance, but a diabetologist has in-depth knowledge about diabetes and its co-existence with other diseases like hypertension.
Q: When do I need to see a dibetologist?
A: You need to see a diabetologist, if your blood glucose levels are higher than the normal values and if you experience symptoms of diabetes such as desire to urinate often, severe thirst and hunger, weakness, weight loss, slow healing of wounds and frequent fungal infections. If you have a family history of diabetes or if you experience low blood sugar, its a good time to consult a diabetologist.
Q: Are diabetologists and dieticians the same?
A: No, diabetologists and dieticians are not the same. A diabetologist may ask you to visit a dietician after diagnosing your condition and prescribing medications to treat diabetes. A dietician will study your health reports and accordingly suggest a diet, necessary and safe for you to help manage diabetes, weight loss and any other weight loss goals you might have.
Q: Should I go to a diabetologist for weight loss?
A: No, if your need for weight loss is not associated with diabetes, then you should not visit a diabetologist. In case of weight gain in conditions like diabetes, a diabetologist will suggest exercises, yoga and refer you to a dietician who will help you with weight loss. If you are on treatment for diabetes and start losing weight without apparent reason, consult a diabetologist.
Q: Can a diabetologist treat diabetes insipidus?
A: Diabetes insipidus is a condition where a person has normal blood glucose levels but needs to urinate extremly frequently and has extreme thirst. Your doctor may refer you to a nephrologist or an enodcrinologist if you are diagnosed with diabetes insipidus. So, a diabetologist cannot treat diabetes insipidus.
