Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sanders "As an endocrine, diabetes, hypertension, lipid, and kidney specialist, I realize that specialty care must be integrated into the overall health care and lifestyle of patients and their families. In the end, patients choose their providers and provide their care. It's all about the patients and their ability to self-manage their health. My job is to help patients make the best choices. My goal is to help them with optimal self-care management. I have a strong focus on ABCS and Self-Care Behaviors to help patients prevent cardiovascular diseases and improve overall health.  ABCS are A1C, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, and Smoking.  Self-care behaviors include healthy eating, being active, monitoring, taking medications, healthy coping, problem solving, reducing risks, sleeping well, stress reduction, and no smoking. Patients need to integrate their Self-Care Behaviors with their specific social determinants of health—the daily things they face in life. My job is to help them with that process."
