Diabetes Shared Medical Appointment
Shared Medical Appointments (SMA) are now being offered at Heater Road Primary Care for adult patients with diabetes. Family Medicine practitioners, Dionna Rookey, PA, and Larissa Dreyer, PA will lead the discussion along with group facilitator, Andrea Z-Covey, Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach. This appointment will offer individual updates, as needed, basic diabetes education and support with sustainable self-management skills for patients (and their support person) dealing with diabetes. In many cases, you can control diabetes through better nutrition, a healthy weight, physical activity, and regular checkups with your health care team. One of these areas of concern will be highlighted at each meeting yet discussion will be guided by patient’s interest.
Note: This event is covered by most insurance plans. Patients will check-in as if for an office visit, their insurance plan will be billed, and the patient will be responsible for any co-pays at the time of service.
Space is limited to 20 participants. To reserve a spot, please call (603) 650-4000.
