The Madison Clinic

for Pediatric Diabetes at UCSF

New website coming this summer!

Our aim is to improve the lives of our patients and their families and to ease the burden of diabetes through compassionate and individualized management with emphasis on education, empowerment, and use of advanced technologies.

The Madison Clinic brings together under one roof a team of endocrinologists, clinical psychologists, nurses, diabetes educators, social workers, dietitians, and a dedicated administrative staff, led by the Clinic Director, Dr. Saleh Adi, to create a Center of Excellence. Our translational research program is conducting cutting edge clinical trials that aim at preventing as well as curing diabetes. Thanks to our dedicated diabetes researchers and clinicians, U.S. News & World Report ranked UCSF endocrinology and diabetes fourth in the nation for 2011-2012.

The need for tighter control of blood sugars has led to exponential improvements in the way we monitor blood sugar levels and deliver insulin. Sophisticated pumps and glucose sensors are becoming standard tools, and newer insulins and other drugs are likely to become available very soon.

With all of these significant advances, it is increasingly important that we have a highly skilled team of diabetes health care providers who deliver the latest in diabetes education to help optimize overall disease management.

Our clinical team includes a dually trained pediatric and adult endocrinologist who will lead our efforts to establish a unique transition program for older teens and young adult patients.
