Diabetes and Obesity Care

Dr. Eden Miller, an Osteopathic board-certified Family Practitioner, received her medical degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1997.  Returning to the Northwest, she completed her residency in Family Practice at East Moreland Hospital in Portland, Oregon.  Recently completing her certification in Obesity management, she is the founder of Diabetes Nation a nonprofit organization, and CEO of Diabetes and Obesity Care where she practices in Bend.

Her adage for care is that she “only succeeds as a provider if she turns patients into experts on their own disease”. 

Dr. Miller believes that a “physiologic patient individualized approach to diabetes intervention is crucial to success. She feels if our nation is to triumph over the ravages of diabetes, a collaborative effort; unhindered by fear of personal scrutiny, and barriers for effective treatment need to be removed”. 

For her, Diabetes and Obesity Care provides the foundational model to impact the people that represent this disease and begin the process of restoring hope back to their lives.
