A team of specialists manages all aspects of diabetes and any complications, creating a complete and tailored treatment plan for patients that includes:

  • High-risk Care: We provide preventive surveillance and interventions for high risk pre-diabetes patients.
  • Device Assistance: This includes insulin pump training and continuous glucose monitoring.
  • TELEVIGILANCE: Medical services and healthcare services are provided by the University of Miami Health System using Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) to provide clinical insight into a patient’s physiological profile outside the clinical setting.
