“All the services I have received from Cherry Health are great. I am 100% happy. My doctor is awesome and provides excellent care. She was the one who had told me about the diabetes prevention program through the YMCA. Through this program I have learned about lifestyle changes which has caused me to stop gaining weight. My doctor is very supportive and always asks for updates about the program. She is not judgmental and reiterates what I learn at the group sessions.”
