A sensible alternative to crowded ERs & urgent care clinics for people with diabetes

The often-complex medical needs of immune-compromised diabetics call for a better healthcare alternative to germ-ridden walk-in clinics and hectic hospital ERs. If you or a loved one has fallen ill, sustained an injury, or needs assistance managing symptoms and complications from type 1 or 2 diabetes, we are here to help. DispatchHealth caters to people with diabetes by providing in-home healthcare from board-certified medical teams, which include a physician assistant or nurse practitioner, and DispatchHealth medical technician (DHMT), and an ER physician who is accessible by phone. Request care via phone, website, or app and our extensively trained professionals will be at your home within a matter of hours to help.

Diabetes is associated with cardiovascular disease, nerve problems, vision loss, kidney disease, and other medical issues. These issues can make traveling to a traditional healthcare facility difficult and frustrating. Another common and troubling symptom of Diabetic Ketoacidosis from Diabetes is hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar. When this occurs in diabetic patients, it can cause frequent urination, unquenchable thirst, abdominal pain, headaches and more. All of these symptoms combined makes for a challenging trek to even the nearest urgent care location.

When you turn to DispatchHealth to provide on-demand treatment for you or a loved one with Diabetes, you can be assured that you’ll be assisted by fully equipped professionals who can perform minor procedures, administer on-site tests, supply medications, and provide many other vital medical services in the comfort of your home. In fact, we offer many of the same services as an ER, but at about one tenth of the cost.

The comprehensive care you deserve

Whether we visit your home to help a loved one manage diabetes symptoms or provide treatment for an acute illness, we’ll send a detailed report to the appropriate primary care physician and/or assisted living facility and even come back to provide follow-up care, if necessary.

Contact DispatchHealth today to request in-home care. Diabetes symptoms don’t take days off, so neither do we – we are here to serve you and your family every day, including holidays. All major health insurance plans are accepted, including Medicare and Medicaid.
