If you have been diagnosed with Diabetes, there is lots of information available to help you understand and treat your condition.
We have a Diabetic Clinic in our office every Friday, staffed by a Diabetic Nurse and Dietitian.  Their services are covered by OHIP.  They can help you learn more about Diabetes, monitor your blood sugars, review your diet, start insulin, and more.

Please call our office to book an appointment with the Diabetic Team.
