Diabetes Services

The Miami Valley Hospital Bull Family Diabetes Center is Dayton’s only fully-integrated program that offers outpatient care, inpatient and outpatient education and full-time physician practice dedicated to diabetes under one roof.

Approaching the patient as a person with diabetes first, they can treat the patient best for his or her condition. Their knowledge of the disease enables them to spot and respond to diabetes-related conditions quickly.

Since diabetes is a progressive disease, some patients may come back for re-evaluation, education and adjustment of their treatment.

Diagnosis

Primary care physicians refer their patients to the Bull Family Diabetes Center for either education or care—or both. Often when a patient is first diagnosed with diabetes, the family physician sends the patient and family for education programs that will teach them how to manage the disease. Physicians may also refer their patients to the care of the Center's physicians, who focus their practices entirely on diabetes care.

Some medical insurance—like Medicare—requires referral by a patient's primary care physician for coverage of education or treatment.

Diabetes Education Classes

The Center offers several classes on managing diabetes. We also offer one-on-one sessions with a diabetes nurse educator or a registered dietician for a patient's specific needs. Many patients living with diabetes long-term continue to attend our education programs.
