About Us

Here at Alliance In Health Diabetes Control Center, we're dedicated to the idea that people with diabetes deserve to live happy, healthy lives. Our McAllen, Texas, practice provides diabetes resources and treatments to help make that vision a reality.

About Alliance In Health Diabetes Control Center

Alliance in Health Diabetes Control Center started with a simple premise in mind: we wanted to give every patient the resources they need to live active, healthy, and long lives, while educating them about the importance of preventative health measures. More than seven years later, we're still driven by that idea.

Our record of accomplishment over the years speaks to our commitment to our patients, their families, and the community at large. All of our facilities are clean and modern, and we have the latest technology at our disposal. Our well-trained staff is empathetic, professional, and genuinely cares about their patients' needs. You'll notice the difference in our quality of care from the moment you step inside our office. It is our goal to help you map out a health and wellness plan tailored to your health history and needs. Get in touch with us today to find out more.
