“Judy remembers everything about her patients, and cares for them as though they were family,” says Marianne Leduc, RD, one of more than a dozen nominators of June’s Star Performer, Judy Pentedemos. “Her patients love her!”
Judy is the Clinical Manager of the Diabetes and Endocrine Center and has worked at Lowell General Hospital since 2014. She is also a Certified Diabetes Educator and a Family Nurse Practitioner.
Karen Villemaire, Practice Manager of the Diabetes and Endocrine Center says, “Judy is a great teacher and engages team members each time there is something she feels they should know or see. She loves to share her knowledge and to see her staff grow in their jobs.”
“Judy has brought a wealth of experience and knowledge that many of us have benefited from,” says Miguel Ariza, MD. “She has brought new insights into the treatment of many of our patients with diabetes, and made a big difference in their sugar control and in their lives.”
“Judy’s compassion and ability to motivate her patients is her priority, and her work ethic is something I admire,” says Karen Gallagher, RN. “She always has a positive attitude and is truly dedicated to her job.”
“Many of Judy’s patients from her previous position followed her to Lowell General’s Diabetes and Endocrine Center. They say that Judy is so compassionate in her care for them that they would follow her anywhere, even if it means driving an hour to see her,” says Andrea Newby, Medical Receptionist at the Diabetes and Endocrine Center.
Judy lives in Pepperell with her husband Charlie and they have three sons, Chuck, Chris and Nick, and seven grandchildren. Judy says she could not do what she does without the support she has received from her family. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with family and friends, attending her grandchildren’s many activities, knitting, car shows and traveling.
Congratulations Judy! You're a star!
