What is The Diabetes Metabolic Center?
The Diabetes Metabolic Center at Atlanta Medical Center was established as a comprehensive outpatient treatment program for patients with diabetes. The Center aims to reduce the dangerous affects of the disease by providing a multidisciplinary approach to patient care.
The Center includes the resources of a wide range of specialists who are available to provide consultation and treatment. Physicians of The Diabetes Metabolic Center are board-certified in their specialties and include Endocrinologists, Internists, Podiatrists, and Rheumatologists.
Since Atlanta Medical Center is a teaching hospital, patients have the added benefit of being treated by physicians who also are academicians. The Center participates in a great variety of drug trials, and patients may have the opportunity to experience some of the newest treatment protocols. The American Diabetes Association has certified the Diabetes Metabolic Center’s Diabetes Self-Management Outpatient Education Program.
After an initial evaluation by a physician, patients are referred, as appropriate, for evaluation and treatment recommendations by other team members. After the patient has met with involved team members, a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan is developed and presented to the patient.
Progress and patient treatment plans are reviewed in regular treatment team conferences to monitor outcomes and to promote continual quality of care.
