Prompt, knowledgeable, sick care is especially important for diabetic patients. FHCC has an on-site x-ray and lab enabling us to treat serious infections, such as pneumonia, efficiently.
We will always see our diabetic patients the same day for acute problems like the flu. Our physicians have admission privileges for East Georgia Medical Center and follow them upon discharge for more serious medical issues.
Patients with diabetes must take special care of their skin and Family Health Care Center’s providers understand the TLC needed to heal. We do laceration repairs, skin biopsies, mole and lesion removals, as well as complete foot assessments all in-office. Visit our Dermatology page for more info.
We offer supportive care and treat uncomplicated anxiety and depression. Family Health Care Center also collaborates with local psychologists and counseling centers if more intense support is needed to cope with their illness
The providers at Family Health Care Center will teach you how to begin insulin, use diabetes meters as well as managing and beginning insulin pumps when needed. We offer individual self-management appointments and insulin training. FHCC has various types of free glucose monitors on-site and will work with your insurance company to get your supplies quickly, at the most cost-effective pricing.
We also have an office-based CGM (continuous glucose monitor) that will record your blood sugars for 3-5 days to better see your patterns and adjust medications. We will order and set up personnel CGM for qualified patients.
