“Care Guides” Program for Diabetic Patients by Dr. Dale

Posted on: November 20, 2013

Diabetic patients seen in the Leland Medical Clinic will be assessed with a program called “care guides.” This program is like scheduled maintenance in that your doctor or nurse practitioner will be alerted periodically when it is time for you to have certain lab tests, eye exams, diabetic foot exams, urine tests, and diet counseling, all of which are designed to help diabetic patients to improve their health and/or maintain their good health. This program also allows the patient to better understand diabetes and to play a role in his/her health.
