The Touro Diabetes Center provides a comprehensive program of educational services and support to individuals and groups. The Diabetes Center works closely with physicians to identify each patient’s specific needs and helps them develop the self-management skills needed to control their disease.
The educators in the Touro Diabetes Center are certified through the National Certification Board of Diabetes Educators, and the American Diabetes Association recognizes this program as meeting the national standards for diabetes self-management education. Our team also includes a licensed, registered dietitian to help coach patients through meal planning and weight control.
To receive outpatient diabetes education, a physician’s order needs to be completed, signed and faxed to the Diabetes Center at (504) 897-7121. The Diabetes Center staff will contact the patient to schedule their first appointment. Medicare and most other insurance plans cover diabetes education and support services when medically necessary. Co-pays and deductibles may apply. The Diabetes Center also accepts private pay patients.
