Team-Based Care Feedback From the Staff My Diabetic patients HgA1Cs are quickly improving I am enjoying participating and being part of a team that is making a difference each day Although we are not 100% Patient-Centered – but once we have our teams 100% in place; we will be an amazing clinic. I feel important; my ideas about care and treatment plans can be shared with the provider and nurses. I go home on time feeling effective and fulfilled, having had the time to do a good job with each patient. From the Patients I love knowing the face of the nurse always helping me. None of my friends have their own health advocates---I have a lot of fighters for me. I am treated as an individual at Mosaic Medical. I dont just get medical care at Mosaic MedicalI get life care.
