What to Expect at Your Pediatric Diabetes Appointment
Putting patient first with extended appointments and educational classes
Face time with your diabetes medical team should not be rushed. It's vitally important for you and the team to understand what is happening with your child to reduce the risk of further complication.
Each diabetes appointment is scheduled for one hour and 15 minutes. This includes:
20 minutes with a medical assistant
20 minutes with a diabetes educator
20 minutes with a physician
15 minutes with the clinic nurse
Our diabetes educators work with your child and provide age-appropriate training to help them improve their health. We offer basic and advanced classes for parents to learn about diabetes, daily management tips and how to reduce the risk of complications.
These classes can also help with selecting the right insulin delivery and blood sugar monitoring device for your child's needs.
Classes and materials are available in English and Spanish, and are taught by bilingual staff members. Learn more about our classes here.
