About Us

Medrano & Associates LLC, dba Diabetes Testing Centers™, was established in 2010 in Albuquerque, NM (home of Balloon Fiesta), with a visionary commitment to revolutionize diabetes care. The founders recognized the complex and multifaceted nature of diabetes and sought to create a simple healthcare solution to 'go beyond blood sugars' and a conventional approach. Starting as a pioneer in diabetes testing, the center rapidly evolved into 'diabetic-centric,' focusing on providing a comprehensive and holistic health solution for individuals with diabetes.

Having previously worked in the surgical suites for over a decade and as a manager in Johnson & Johnson's Diabetes Medical Device and Diagnostic Division, we were inspired to create the Diabetes Testing Centers™ with the belief that there was a more effective and patient-centric approach to diabetes care. The vision was to offer a solution that prioritized the needs of the patients while also providing fair compensation to medical providers for delivering optimal care. Diabetes Testing Centers™ was established with a commitment to aligning with insurance quality measures, promoting efficiency, and achieving better outcomes in diabetes management. The goal is to redefine the landscape of diabetes care by combining patient-focused initiatives with healthcare provider support, ensuring that the right thing is done for patients and medical professionals.

Over the years, Diabetes Testing Centers™ has grown into a leading healthcare provider, with over 800 medical clinics offering a unique blend of cutting-edge technologies, personalized interventions, and holistic care. The centers have expanded services to address not only the physical aspects of diabetes but also the mental well-being, lifestyle factors, and overall health of individuals managing this chronic condition. By integrating state-of-the-art advancements, Diabetes Testing Centers™ has positioned itself as a trailblazer in diabetes care, committed to enhancing the quality of life for those living with diabetes by addressing every aspect of their healthcare journey.

Daniel Medrano CEO/Founder

As a family-based company with over 25 years of collective senior leadership experience in sales, marketing, and medical device distribution, our commitment is centered on reshaping diabetes care. Rooted in our experiences within Johnson & Johnson's Diabetes Medical Device and Diagnostic division, a pivotal moment occurred when our CEO, Daniel Medrano, witnessed a diabetic foot amputation during a surgical procedure, sparking a profound question: 'Why did that amputation occur, and was it avoidable?' This question became the driving force behind our life mission – advocating for simple, non-invasive, and reimbursable risk assessments to prevent diabetic foot amputations.

Our journey, deeply connected to diabetes care in various roles, led us to establish our company. Fueled by a commitment to level the playing field for medical organizations and private clinics, we aimed to transform perceptions about the underdiagnosis and undertreatment of people with diabetes. Unveiling a staggering statistic that over 70% of amputation patients face a life expectancy of no more than three years, we became dedicated to altering the course of lives impacted by diabetes-related morbidities.

This statistic propels our unwavering commitment, bearing the weight of those who deserve a chance at a healthier future. Our mission stands as a testament to the unspoken stories of individuals facing the devastating consequences of diabetes, striving to create a world where all diabetes-related conditions are no longer life-threatening. By collaborating with local communities, we aspire to turn this vision into a tangible reality.
