Type 2 Diabetes, Diagnosed 1988
Endocrinologist: Dr. Robert Schlosser
Certified Diabetes Educator: Stephanie Varriano
Location: LMC Thornhill
Harbhajan has been living with type 2 diabetes for nearly three decades. His family physician referred him to LMC so that he could benefit from a more focused and specialized approach to managing diabetes. With the help of his Endocrinologist Dr. Schlosser and Diabetes Educator Stephanie Varriano, Harbhajan saw a major improvement in his health and his blood sugar levels. “I really like my team of doctors here at LMC; they are very knowledgeable and they know what they are doing. My Diabetes Educator is very professional and friendly; she has helped me keep my blood sugars under control,” Harbhajan said.
A few years back, Harbhajan moved cities and had to leave the LMC clinic. However, he eventually returned to LMC, even though he would be coming from out of town, as he felt he wasn’t receiving the same level of care at other clinics he had visited. He felt that the knowledge and care that he received from his team at LMC provided him with the confidence and skills necessary to best manage his diabetes. Although he now travels out of his way to come to LMC, he believes the trip is worth it as his health is optimal and stable. Harbhajan encourages others to visit a LMC clinic in their area saying, “LMC has so many branches in many cities. I hope other physicians refer their patients to LMC so that they can benefit from the outstanding care as well.”
