GPHA provides complete diagnostic and management services for all chronic diseases.
Due to the high number of patients with diabetes, GPHA is proud to offer its Diabetes Center of Excellence which includes the services of a staff Endocrinologist who works in collaboration with the patient’s primary care provider and other members of the clinical team to lower the hemoglobin A1C to levels that are associated with reductions in complications such as heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness and amputation.
