Shared Medical Appointments for Diabetes Management

Shared Medical Appointments for diabetes management offers team-based, personalized health care and support in a comfortable and helpful group setting.

Spend 90 minutes in a group setting with a doctor and other patients with diabetes:

  • Ask questions and learn how to better manage your health.
  • Hear from guest speakers such as diabetes educators, dietitians and social workers.
  • Learn from others who have diabetes.
  • Get prescriptions changed or refilled.
  • Discuss medication, procedures and treatment options.
  • Receive a private physical exam.
  • Discuss and understand your test results.

A member of your immediate family or a support person is welcome to attend with you.

Shared Medical Appointments are offered as an option for your medical care. The cost is similar to an office visit or co-pay and is covered by most insurance plans. The usual one-to-one office visit option remains available as needed or preferred.
