Barb is awesome!
Guthrie Patient: January 2019
Barb Digiacomo was very helpful. She answered questions that I have been asking for over a year at this department. I do not like when someone rudely interrupts to inform the care provider that she is needed elsewhere.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
She helped me understand something I was having a very hard time understanding
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Barb was wonderful, but she got interrupted many times during my appt for other needs.
Guthrie Patient: July 2018
She is very professional, knowledgeable & personable. I was very unsure about dietary instructions but she overcame my objections.
Guthrie Patient: May 2018
I was referred to Barbara Digiacomo by Christine Pesesky, FNP to review my options for insulin pumps in order to better control my BG (Type 1 Diabetic). Barbara was fantastic to work with. We went over several pump options and we found one that works best for me. She guided me through the process and defined the next actions, and is quick to respond to emails and questions. She has a comforting demeanor and great sense of humor. I look forward to working with her with my medical needs and would refer her to anyone in need of diabetes management/education.
