Diabetes patients who visited a primary care physician were more likely to receive medication intensification and lifestyle counseling compared with those who saw other medical providers in a primary care practice, according to a study in Diabetes Care. "With growing focus on a team-based approach to practicing medicine, this finding should help guide the development of new models of primary care, especially in the care of diabetes patients," said study senior author Dr. Alexander Turchin.
