WVU Medicine Family Medicine offers an intensive diabetes clinic for those who are newly diagnosed with the disease or having difficulty managing their condition. During one outpatient visit, you’ll receive a consultation with a medical team, including a primary care physician, a diabetic educator/dietitian, a case manager, a pharmacist, and a psychologist.

Our team approach will provide you with improved diabetic control, better coordination of your care between providers, and diabetes education. You can also receive a weekly or bi-weekly phone call from one of our pharmacists for insulin management. We can provide you with a referral to the WVU Medicine Diabetes Education Center, if needed.

Your primary care provider may refer you to the intensive diabetes clinic if:

  • You are newly diagnoses with diabetes
  • Your established diagnosis of diabetes has resulted in failure to achieve improvement in glycemic control despite medical intervention
  • You have a hemoglobin A1c of greater than or equal to nine percent.
