Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Levine "Millions of people have Type 2 diabetes, but about one third don't know it. Early detection is crucial since regular treatment can decrease the risk of complications. If you have a family history of diabetes, are overweight, have high blood pressure, or high cholesterol you should be screened for diabetes. In my practice, patients find a team approach to diabetes management with primary care providers and specialists working hand in hand to help patients control the disease."
