Diabetes is a chronic disease that can be managed through lifestyle changes and medication. In the United States, over 34 million people have diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If you’re among the millions of people in this country at risk for diabetes, or pre-diabetes, you can take steps to prevent the disease.
Whether you just found out you have diabetes or have been living with it for years, you can control your diabetes and live a long, active life. PriMed patients who are diagnosed with diabetes will work with their healthcare team to control it.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality, has recognized many PriMed Physicians for their outstanding patient care in the area of diabetes.
NCQA’s Diabetes Recognition Program is built on evidence-based, nationally recognized clinical standards of care. Most of PriMed’s family practice and internal medicine physicians are recognized in the Diabetes Program.
This NCQA recognition is for adult primary care physicians with established practices. (Physicians who recently joined PriMed and pediatricians are not eligible for this recognition.)
All the doctors and providers at PriMed Physicians are experienced and dedicated to patient care. Commitment to providing quality health care is evident in every PriMed Physicians office. So, whether you're experiencing an ongoing medical condition, or just need a doctor for the occasional illness - wouldn't you feel better knowing you had a physician who is committed to quality?
