Three WESTMED physicians from New Rochelle and one whose practice is at WESTMED’s New Rochelle office at 171 Huguenot Street are among 33 physicians at WESTMED Medical Group who have been granted recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for meeting standards demonstrating their delivery of high-quality care to patients with diabetes.
Dr. Barbara Katzeff, who practices internal medicine in New Rochelle, received the honor along with the following WESTMED physicians who reside in New Rochelle: David Herzog, MD and Gary Rothbart, MD, who are WESTMED internists and Kenneth Weiser, MD, a WESTMED endocrinologist.
To earn NCQA recognition, the physicians demonstrated that they meet key diabetes care measures, including eye exams, blood pressure control, HbA1c control, LDL control, smoking and tobacco use and cessation advice and treatment, and patient satisfaction, among others. When people with diabetes receive quality care, they are less likely to suffer complications such as heart attacks, stroke, blindness, kidney disease and amputation.
