Clinic information

We offer separate clinics for diabetes and other endocrine issues.

The diabetes clinics are structured so that most patients are seen four times each year, or every three months. 

At two of these visits patients will see the endocrinologist and at the other two visits patients will see either the diabetes educator or the dietitian. 

A diabetes social worker and psychologist as also available, as needed.
