Christopher Hartley, Diabetes Patient & MyChart User

Can’t imagine managing his diabetes without the help of MyChart

Christopher Hartley


Christopher: When I was diagnosed with diabetes 12 years ago, it was an entire lifestyle change. My Summa endocrinologist, Dr. Mills, introduced me to MyChart, which is a nice electronic tool to help me manage my diabetes and communications with him. Every month I can upload my blood sugar levels for them to look at and then based upon how they're looking, my doctor can make medicine changes as needed. I can also communicate with other doctors outside of the endocrinology group.

Dr. Mills and his nurse practitioner, Debra Mckinney are great, great bedside manner, and I still get the same feeling when I'm talking to them through MyChart as well.

My advice to other patients is that while diabetes is a chronic condition, it does not have to rule your life. And MyChart is a great tool to help you manage your diabetes. I can't imagine managing diabetes today without using MyChart.
