"Dr. Valsamis is fantastic, especially when it comes to caring for Type 1 diabetics. Having a medical assistant and a nurse educator that are Type 1's themselves keeps Dr. Valsamis on the cutting edge of treatment and advances available. She is kind, caring and patient with her patients. I never feel rushed when I come with questions, and she keeps the patient and their lifestyle as a central priority is augmenting care and recommending treatment. It is no mystery that appointments must be scheduled 3-4 months in advance or that you have to wait to see this provider. She is always the last one out of the office because she puts her patients first and is dedicated to addressing their needs, not rushing them through."
