Intensive Diabetes Care

At the Sleeth Family Medicine Center, we strive to provide the most comprehensive care by the best-qualified professionals available.  In the spirit of this patient-centered philosophy, we offer the Intensive Diabetes Clinic.

The Intensive Diabetes Clinic provides a suite of clinical consultations to address the multiple facets of diabetes care, in an effort to discuss issues that may not be readily apparent during a routine visit with the Primary Care Physician.  During each visit, patients will be evaluated by a team that includes:

  • Board-certified Family Medicine Physician
  • Family Medicine Resident Physician
  • Registered Nurse / Licensed Practical Nurse / Medical Assistant
  • Dietitian / Certified Diabetes Educator
  • Nurse Case Manager

A typical visit may include the following:

  • Review of diabetic medications
  • Assessment of diet and lifestyle
  • Review of diabetic laboratory studies
  • Diabetic foot examination
  • Screening evaluation of the retina
  • Discussion of behavioral concerns
  • Discussion of socio-economic concerns
  • Arrangements for further specialist care

By simultaneously addressing the various components of diabetes, the Intensive Diabetes Clinic works to achieve the ultimate goal of a healthier, happier life for patients through optimal glycemic control and prevention/reduction of diabetes-associated complications.
