“Dr. Phillipson saved me, literally! I am from Wisconsin and I travel to Chicago just to see him and his team! I have had t1d since I was a baby and have been to almost EVERY endocrinologist in my state and was doing AWFUL under their care. I was getting conflicting information, a lot of head scratches and surprisingly many doctors blamed me for my uncontrolled diabetes, when I was following orders as they were given. I was very sick. I felt horrible all the time.I went online trying to find a doctor that might actually listen, and take my condition seriously.” -Lisa D
