We are extremely blessed to have Dr Ponder as our son\'s endocronologist. Dr Ponder is a wealth of kbowledge, sincerely cares about our son as a human being. Our initial Dr wanted to go tge surgical route right off the bat, which would leave our son on medication for the rest of his life. Dr Ponders experience took us a different route, and we will forever be loyal patients!

Dr. Ponder spends the time answering questions and working with us to provide the best possible care for our child. He also explains it to our daughter in terms that she understands. I wouldn\'t want anyone else as her provider.

Dr. Ponder has great empathy but he also tells it like it is. He is living with Type 1 diabetes so is very relatable to my daughter with type 1 and the rest of the family. He speaks of the important intangible issues surrounding 1 one such as how to educate and motivate my daughter and how the family\'s support is critical. He spends a good amount of time so we don\'t feel rushed as he answers all of our questions.

REFRESHING! We\'ve finally found a doctor who doesn\'t make us feel rushed, isn\'t just trying to sell us on medications or new devices, and who really gets the complexity of managing type 1. Dr Ponder has an unbelievable wealth of information and personal experience. We got a great preview of that and look forward learning lots from him in the future. Same goes for the CDE. He was great too!

Dr Ponder is amazing! He always asks not only my daughter but me how I\'m holding up. He is so willing to listen about what we are going through and take that into consideration when we go over care changes.

Dr. Ponder was very knowledgeable yet had the ability to explain things clearly. He was also very personable which seems to be rare these days and took the time to ask and answer questions.
