What is Diabetes management at HSNT?
Diabetes management is critical for the health and wellbeing of those who are Type I or Type II diabetic. Having a care team that can walk with you through the many lifestyle changes that you will need to embrace and provide education to help you as you learn this new lifestyle will make all the difference. HSNT providers work diligently to help you maintain healthy blood sugar levels make the little changes that add up to big impact. If you or a family member has recently been diagnosed with diabetes, you may benefit from diabetes management at HSNT.
Diabetes (type 1, type 2, or gestational) can quickly become life-threatening if not treated properly. If you or your family are experiencing any of the following, please reach out to find a provider to help you get control of your diabetes right away:
- You are not able to effectively manage your diabetes or control blood sugar values at home
- You have diabetic wounds that will not heal
- You have new symptoms of diabetic complications, such as neuropathy or retinopathy
- You have trouble managing your weight with diet and exercise as a diabetic
- You have other health issues that make managing your diabetes very difficult
All of these factors can be detrimental to a diabetic patient of any age. This is why we feel it is imperative to offer case management to meet the unique needs of the diabetic population.
HSNT patients have access to services that will help them control their diabetes:
- If you have difficulty affording your prescriptions, HSNT offers a Prescription Assistance Program
- Case Management to help you connect to available resources
- In house lab testing

"HSNT is a great place. Everyone has been so helpful and kind. The sliding scale allows me to have good quality healthcare that I can afford."- T.S. / Facebook / May 13, 2021
"I don't recommend. Brittney has made me feel invalidated since I started going there, so I skipped my apts with her. Some of the rooms are dirty, and alot if the staff is rude. My first time there the ladies at the front desk were speaking amongst eachother in Spanish instead of handing me my paperwork. Often time the on call nurses are extremely rude. I just spoke to one about a concern of mine, and she told me "I was just about to go to bed, and you called." That's extremely unprofessional. The only person there that was worth seeing was Dr. Assis, I'm not sure how to spell his name. Save yourself the time here."- K.W. / Google / May 10, 2021
"(Translated by Google) All the staff that I contacted was kind to me and answered any questions that I felt very comfortable on my first appointment. If I would recommend to my relatives (Original) Todo el personal con el que tube contacto fue amable conmigo y contestaron a cualquier duda que tube me senti muy comoda en mi primera cita.. Si recomendaría a mis familiares"- F.C. / Google / May 08, 2021
"Amazing staff. All the nurses are really nice and very professional. One of the nurses who drew blood from my two-year-old did it so fast that by the time he noticed she was already done. And the doctor I saw was very knowledgeable and able to answer questions that had stumped other doctors that I had been to."- P.M. / Google / May 08, 2021
