UAMS’ Diabetes (Endocrine) Clinic specializes in the multidisciplinary care of diabetic patients and gives special attention to the complications of diabetes. Our program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association, and we incorporate the American Diabetes Association standards of care in our practice.
Our caring and compassionate staff members in the Diabetes (Endocrine) Clinic work with our other subspecialists in eye care, surgery, kidney, podiatry and other specialties to provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient management for diabetes.
Our clinic is staffed with two diabetes educators and dietitians as well as a podiatrist who specializes in diabetes foot care. We offer weekly diabetes education classes for patients, and we welcome patients who have been referred to us by any doctor. A behavioral psychologist and an exercise physiologist participate in the classes.
Our clinic also offers a diabetes information line at 501-296-1220 for patients to contact members of the team with questions or concerns.
Appointments with the Diabetes (Endocrine) Clinic are by referral only. Please contact your primary care doctor or visit one of our doctors in the Center for Primary Care to obtain a referral.
