are recognized for quality care measures. We are qualified to help you manage your cholesterol.
Six of TLC’s adult primary care physicians have been recognized by the The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Heart/Stroke Recognition Program. The program was designed to improve the quality of care that patients with cardiovascular disease or who have had a stroke receive by recognizing physicians who deliver this quality care.
To receive recognition, which is valid for three years, the physicians submitted data that demonstrates performance that meets the program's key cardiovascular and stroke care measures. These measures include blood pressure
and cholesterol control, among others. When people with cardiovascular disease or who have had a stroke receive quality care as outlined by these measures, they are less likely to suffer additional complications, such as a second heart attack or stroke.
