|Madhura Mansabdar, M.D.
Internal Medicine Specialist Madhura Mansabdar, M.D., of MidMichigan Physicians Group inMt.Pleasant, has been recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) in the Diabetes Recognition Program for providing quality care to patients with diabetes.
The Diabetes Recognition Program was designed to improve the quality of care that patients with diabetes receive by recognizing clinicians who deliver quality diabetes care and by motivating other clinicians to document and improve diabetes care.
To receive recognition, which is valid for three years, Dr. Mansabdar submitted data that demonstrated performance meeting the program’s key diabetes care measures. These measures include eye exams, blood pressure tests, nutrition therapy and patient satisfaction. When people with diabetes receive quality care as outlined by these measures, they are less likely to suffer complications such as heart attacks, stroke, blindness, kidney disease and amputations.
“For a person with diabetes, the right clinician can make the difference between living with diabetes as opposed to suffering from diabetes,” said Richard M. Bergenstal, M.D., president, Medicine and Science, American Diabetes Association. “Clinicians who earn recognition through the Diabetes Recognition Program have an established track record of providing excellent diabetes care.”
“Our office provides comprehensive diabetes care, including insulin pump management,” Dr. Mansabdar said. “We are well versed in the most up-to-date diabetes management techniques available.”
