At Harbor View Medical Services, our team of diabetes specialists will give you the treatment, education and support you need to manage the disease and avoid complications.
Here are some of the reasons to choose us.
Personalized Diabetes Care
One of the things that sets Harbor View's diabetes services apart is our approach. We start by taking the time to listen to you and understand your needs, goals and challenges. We know you're not just another blood sugar number—you're a unique person trying to juggle diabetes and daily life.
That's why we will create a care plan that's based on diabetes treatment guidelines and tailored specifically to your life.
The result is care that works and is sustainable.
An Expert Team of Diabetes Doctors and Specialists
When you choose Harbor View, you get access to a team of diabetes specialists, such as:
Endocrinologists. These doctors are experts in diabetes care. Our team includes some of the top endocrinologists on Long Island.
Your endocrinologist will work with you to create a treatment plan that will help you control your diabetes and avoid complications. He or she will also manage your care over time.
Diabetes nutritionists. Your nutritionist will help you develop a meal plan that keeps you healthy without making you feel like you can't enjoy the foods you love.
Diabetes educators. Managing diabetes can feel overwhelming at times. Your diabetes educator can help you with tips and advice on everything from handling stress to using an insulin pump or the latest glucose meter technology.
Our educators also teach individual and group diabetes self-management classes. These classes will help you learn about the disease and how to manage it.
Our diabetes education program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association for meeting the national standards for excellence in diabetes self-management education.
A Diabetes Prevention Program
Do you have risk factors for type 2 diabetes, such as excess weight? Or has your doctor said you have prediabetes? You can still avoid diabetes. Our diabetes prevention program can show you how to make small lifestyle changes that can cut your chances of getting full-blown diabetes by more than half.
The year-long program was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It's led by a trained lifestyle coach.
To see if the program is right for you, take this risk assessment, and talk with your doctor about the results.
