Diabetes Center of Excellence
Diabetes poses a significant threat to the health of the southeastern Queens Community. In order to manage the process, Queens Hospital Center has developed a Center of Excellence for Diabetes and a distinct area in the hospital where our specialists can diagnose, treat and educate our patients.
A team of specialists in endocrinology and in diabetes management provides
care to patients with diabetes. The program involves a significant amount
of patient education and nutritional counseling. Individualized diabetic
management plans aimed at reducing future complications (ophthalmologic,
renal, cardiac, neurologic) of diabetes are provided to each patient.
