Southboro Medical Group has assembled a new team to offer care to patients with diabetes. The team, led by Dr. Daniel Crowe includes a certified diabetes educator, dietitian, and nurses.
Here’s an excerpt from Southboro Medical’s press release:
According to Dr. Crowe: “The goal of the team approach to diabetes care is to empower the patient by giving him or her the necessary tools to change behavior and diet, and begin to take responsibility for their health.”
The Diabetes Program embraces the use of the new technologies that are helping patients with diabetes meet the challenge of controlling their disease. “We teach people how to monitor their blood glucose. We help them understand why that’s important. When they come in for a visit, we download the meter and use software to analyze the data, show them their trends and regulate medication accordingly,” he said. Dr. Crowe and his team also use continuous glucose monitors and insulin pumps in appropriate patients. Many patients may also be eligible for newer medications that are weight-sparing or weight-neutral in treating their diabetes.
The Diabetes Program is located at Southboro Medical’s office on Newton Street. New patients age 16 and older are being accepted. For more information, or to make an appointment with Dr. Crowe, call 508-460-3268.
