Why We Need Endrocinologists

Once we know as much as doctors -- or sometimes even more -- we become frustrated with the tedious process of seeing them every three months for an obligatory progress report. Though it pains me to say this, as much as we feel we don't need to see doctors, they are essential to our overall well being.
