It is with great pleasure to welcome you to the Gulf Diabetes Specialist Centre (GDSC), one of the region’s leading medical centers devoted entirely to the treatment of diabetes and its related complications. GDSC is an outpatient medical center specifically designed to provide diabetes prevention programs and also multidisciplinary education and treatment for people with diabetes and their families.
Gulf Diabetes Specialist Centre was opened as an affiliate of the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, USA in Jan 2004. In December, 2008, GDSC started to operate independently as it expanded services from covering diabetes only to covering all endocrinology disorders, including thyroid diseases and cancers, osteoporosis, and related disorders.
As a Medical Director and practicing Endocrinologist, I have come to realize that two of the greatest challenges for patients and families facing a diagnosis of diabetes is selecting the physician and health care provider and getting prompt access to the specialists and tests needed to confirm the diagnosis and initiate treatment. In achieving that, our goal was to help alleviate these concerns and challenges for those who entrust their care to us.
I am especially proud of GDSC’s commitment to provide holistic support services through our dedicated outstanding group of physicians to all related services to diabetes and endocrine care.
It is my privilege to work with a group of dedicated colleagues. Together we share the responsibility and accountability to provide the overall leadership in the delivery of quality diabetes & endocrine care across the Kingdom and the region.
Thank you for allowing us the honor to participate in your health. I assure you that your experience here in our Centre is of utmost importance. It is our pleasure that we can serve you.
Because we care!
