Diabetes Care and Chronic Care
Our Chronic Care Team specializes in the care of people with diabetes, high blood pressure and other ongoing health concerns. All services are provided in Spanish and English and each staff members is committed to the wellbeing of each individual patient.
When someone is diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, he or she will immediately begin working with this team. Our team will encourage and empower patients to …
- monitor blood sugar levels and take necessary medication
- choose and prepare healthy foods
- manage weight and find an exercise they can do comfortably
We also will invite a newly-diagnosed patient to sign up for the Diabetes Alliance program, in which they will get all the recommended tests and services to control the disease for a reduced cost.

Live healthy. Live fully.
We believe each patient can be healthy and live fully, even with diabetes. So we will provide consistent, specialized care with the goal of bringing both healing and hope.
