Your first visit to Diabetes Care and Research
At the McMaster site patients are seen by a Nurse Practitioner on the first visit followed by an endocrinologist at a later date. Follow-up appointments are booked with a nurse and dietitian. All patients will be triaged for timing and urgency of their first visit. Patients will be assigned to attend classes to meet their learning and diabetes management needs.
Patients should bring their medications, home glucose monitors and logbooks to each visit.
All patients must present their Health Card at each clinic appointment. Please ensure you health card is up to date with current address and has not expired. If you require assistance obtaining or renewing your Health Card Information please visit the Hamilton Ministry of Health Office.
