This is chronic disease where the patient has a pivotal role in managing their disease; I want to use my skills as a clinician to educate and empower my patients to manage their disease and improve their health. I work closely with the endocrinologists, other nurse practitioners and dietician in the office to ensure each patient gets individualized complete diabetes care.”
