We have one of the few physicians in the state to be recognized in diabetes care by the National Committee for Quality Assurance/American Diabetes Association.
Jacques Laguerre, MD, Sadhana Char, MD and Roshni Patel, MD have been awarded recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance/American Diabetes Association Diabetes Provider Rocognition Program. This recognition is based upon the provision of comprehensive treatment for the diabetic patient, meeting the national standards for care. We utilize these standards to provide quality care.
Our staff will assist you with quality management of diabetes. We will provide you the information you need to be an informed patient.
Advice will be provided for regular vision checks and foot care. Laboratory testing will be performed at regular intervals to make sure you are acheiving your goals for treatment. We are available as your resource for diabetes care.
We offer comprehensive education regarding diabetes, cholesterol and high blood pressure. We will tailor the information we provide to your needs, with either individual or group classes.
We follow the national guidelines for the treatment of diabetes. We will select medications that lower your risk for the complications of diabetes - eye damage; kidney damage; poor circulation and heart disease. In addition to glucose control, we make sure that you also achieve treatment goals for your cholesterol and blood pressure. This combined approach for treatment lowers the chances for a heart attack, stroke or kidney failure.
Once a diagnosis is made (from elevated cholesterol or blood pressure to coronary heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure or diabetes) we will assist with your disease management. We use the results of the latest research to select medications and offer a comprehensive treatment program. Our staff is available for education sessions regarding medications as well as important lifestyle changes. Our goal is to provide care that will lower your risk for the complications of heart disease.
