Good SamaritanServices and Clinical CentersDiabetes

Diabetes

Unlike many health conditions, patients themselves can control diabetes – when they understand and practice proper medical management and lifestyle strategies.

At Good Samaritan, our diabetes education appointments, diabetes education classes and diabetes support groups are offered in conjunction with New England Sinai Hospital at their Richard A. Field Diabetes Center, located at 150 York Street in Stoughton, Massachusetts. Patients must receive a physician referral for outpatient diabetes services. Convenient appointment times for consultations and instruction are available.

The Diabetes Center at New England Sinai Hospital is designed to promote the health and well being of patients with diabetes. Through a team approach, the center serves as a resource to the patient, the patient's family and the primary care physician. The Diabetes Center has been recognized by the American Diabetes Association for quality patient education and provider recognition since 1993.

The Diabetes Center Serves

  • Patients diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes
  • Newly diagnosed adults with diabetes
  • Individuals diagnosed with diabetes whose condition has changed, or who would like a second opinion on treatment
  • Pregnant women with diabetes, or those who develop diabetes during pregnancy (gestational)
  • Patients requiring support, education or motivation to manage their diabetes
  • Families of those diagnosed with diabetes
