“We are committed to helping patients successfully control their
diabetes. The Diabetes Care Group clinic in Kosciusko will bring
expert resources for diabetes management to this community and help
those who are struggling to gain control of their diabetes,” said
Marshall J. Bouldin, M.D. and Chief Medical Officer of the Diabetes
Care Group.

The university-tested and proven program shows remarkable success
rates for treating diabetes.

Ninety-one percent of Diabetes Care Group patients achieve full
control of their diabetes or realize significant improvements, most
in three to six months.

“Diabetes Care Group has built an excellent reputation, based on
extraordinary results right here in Mississippi. They not only give
you the time, education and personal care plan that patients deserve,
but they work very closely with primary care physicians like me as
part of your care team,” said James Withers, M.D. and physician at
Kosciusko Medical Clinic. “It’s an ideal partnership that brings a
new level of overall care to our community.”

diabetes,” said Bouldin “We deliver innovative care through a team
of experts which empowers our patients to manage their disease and
improve their lives.”

Treatment programs at Diabetes Care Group integrate state-of-the-art
medical management and patient education to improve the self-
management of diabetes. All care provided by Diabetes Care Group is
coordinated with the patient’s primary care physician.
