VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

Sanjay Gupta, MD, Everyday Health:When you go to see your doctor, you don’t expect a crowd. The doctor’s appointment is something that has traditionally been one-on-one. But one practice in Florida is breaking that tradition as they try to get a handle on one of the biggest problems facing the nation – the rise in diabetes.

This may look like a business meeting, but it’s actually a doctor’s appointment. All these patients have diabetes and they are seeing their doctor… together.

The typical doctor’s appointment today is scheduled for ten minutes. This one lasts an hour and a half.

Ben Kaplan, MD, Orlando Health:Ninety minutes with your physician is unheard of in our day and age.

Dr. Gupta:And it’s not just a physician. Dieticians, physiatrists, even pharmacists join the group.

Lauren Popeck, RD, Orlando Health:I think patients, when they come together and they are going through the same thing, it gives them a sense of security and of encouragement that, hey, I’m not going through this alone.

Dr. Gupta:The monthly group visits do not replace the traditional one-on-one appointment. But in these meetings there is time to share exercise information, diet information… and encouragement.

Dr. Kaplan:So they saw that if they were coming and their friends were coming to the appointments together, they together they would do better. It’s that group mentality where I am going to do as good as you, or maybe even do better, so their health got better.

Dr. Gupta:And they are getting better. After a year of shared medical appointments, this group lost an average of more than 14 pounds per person. Their blood pressure dropped considerably and their cholesterol fell an average of more than 45 points.

With Everyday Health, I’m Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Be well.
