Facey Medical Group's Patient Education Department has certified diabetes educators who provide comprehensive diabetes education services to both our patients and the community. We train patients how to test their blood glucose level and use insulin delivery equipment, such as insulin syringes, pens and pumps. Our team also provides patients with glucometers when needed as well as diet and nutrition assistance to help patients adjust to their new lifestyle.

We work closely with physicians to provide the best medical care available.
Our group diabetes programs are open to the public and do not require a physician referral. One-on-one sessions with educators and dietitians are only available if you have been referred to the program by your Facey physician. One-on-one appointments with a clinical pharmacist don't require a referral, but you must be a current Facey patient.
Our group diabetes programs are offered at no cost to you. The cost for individual appointments varies based on your health insurance benefits and a co-payment may apply. As a courtesy, Facey offers private discounts for patients who are not covered by insurance.
