What Patients Say About Carmelita

As a first timer to one-on-one coaching, Carmelita was very warm and welcoming. I have already recommended Diabetes Digital to a few friends because of the easy to use platform, the great service I have received so far from sign up to becoming a client, and can see myself actually seeing through any goals I create with my dietitian because of the great support.
I loved the walk through of my test results.  Also appreciated how much time and care given for the session.  I felt heard and motivated. I'm excited about working together.
