The only accredited diabetes education program in private practice in the SF South Bay Area

OUR MISSION

To delay the onset of diabetes for at-risk individuals and improve their quality of life

WHO WE ARE

An experienced team of Certified Diabetes Educators, Dietitians and Nutritionists running a nationally-accredited program for Diabetes Self-Management Education.  We have been the only private practice program in the SF South Bay since 2009.

Our patients come to us from throughout the South Bay area and from as far away as Gilroy and Hollister, because their doctors have to come to know us as the premier provider of Diabetes Education services.  We deliver superior outcomes.

__________________________________________

Medicare recipients rely on us for a valuable resource.  Only an accredited program such as ours is permitted to provide them the full 13-hour diabetes education benefit.   Other practice groups can only provide 3 hours.

We are in-network providers for most insurance plans, including TriCare, SCCIPA, PMG, Affinity, Stanford Health Care Alliance,  CIGNA and AETNA.
