Diabetes Management Clinic Now Open at Dorminy Medical Center

Fitzgerald, GA | April 5, 2023 – Dorminy Medical Center now treating patients with Type 2 diabetes at outpatient clinic. The Diabetes Management Clinic is located on the third floor at Dorminy Medical Center.

The Diabetes Clinic team will meet with each patient to educate them and develop an individualized care plan based on the patient’s diabetic symptoms, metabolism, and medical history. The Diabetes Clinic also uses a unique infusion therapy designed to reduce insulin resistance in order to help manage patient’s symptoms. Our clinic is run by Selina Boggan, NP.

The infusion therapy process uses an FDA-approved infusion “smart” pump that releases periodic pulses of insulin mimicking the way a healthy pancreas delivers insulin. This helps re-program the signaling and communication processes between the pancreas and other cells in the body addressing the root cause of diabetes instead of only suppressing the symptoms. The infusions typically last about 2-3 hours.

Selina Boggan, NP, Director of Diabetes Management Clinic states: “I’m looking forward to seeing patients take better control of their illness. Being able to give them tools and knowledge to manage their blood glucose level on a daily basis is very rewarding.”

Paige Wynn, CEO of Dorminy Medical Center explains: “At DMC we are continuously trying to improve access to specialty care in our community. Diabetes requires constant attention and regular follow-up. Having the Diabetes Management Clinic in our community is key to improving the quality of life of the patient.”

Diabetes is a chronic disease and if left untreated can result in complications that affect the entire body. According to Georgia Department of Public Health, approximately 1 million people (12.4%) in Georgia have a diagnosis of diabetes in 2022. Those with diabetes are twice as likely to have heart disease or a stroke than those without diabetes and is the leading cause of kidney failure, nontraumatic lower-limb amputations and blindness among adults. There are three types of diabetes: Type 1, Type 2, and gestational (diabetes while pregnant). Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90%-95% of all cases.

Dorminy is committed to the health of the community, and the goal of the Diabetes Management Clinic is to improve clinical outcomes, reduce medical costs and utilization, and increase patient satisfaction.
