Diabetes Screening
Following the American Diabetes Association guidelines, we routinely screen patients with risk factors for diabetes. We have written screening forms and guidelines which allow us to identify patients at risk. We offer same-day results for glucose, hemoglobin A1C, and urinary protein tests. The doctor and patients can then discuss treatment options, new medications, diets or changes in medication to bring their glucose and A1C levels under control. Dr. Rocha has written manuals, booklets, pamphlets, monitoring tools and patient instructions that we then give to diabetic patients to have them participate in the management of the diabetes. We have a very thorough and complete management plan team and tools to help guide the patients and staff in the prevention, management and prevention of complications of diabetes.
