Aurora Physicians Receive National Recognition for Quality Diabetes Care
Date:12/29/2008

MILWAUKEE, Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Committee for Quality Assurance and the American Diabetes Association announced that Aurora physicians Hany Mikhaeel, M.D., Terry Spears Barnett, M.D., Mirela Sturzu, M.D., Rudolf Teschan, M.D., and Maggie Zaki, M.D., received recognition from the Diabetes Physician Recognition Program for providing quality care to patients with diabetes.

Drs. Hany and Zaki practice at the Aurora Health Center, 6901 W. Edgerton Ave., Milwaukee. Dr. Spears Barnett has her office at 2801 W. Kinnickinnic River Parkway, Milwaukee. Dr. Sturzu practices at Aurora Health Center, 5250 S. 108th St., Hales Corners. Dr. Teschan has his office at Aurora Health Center, 4025 N. 92nd St., Wauwatosa.

To receive this recognition, which is valid for three years, physicians are required to submit data demonstrating that they meet key diabetes care measures. These measures include careful control of blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure, and regular performance of diabetic eye and feet exams. When people with diabetes receive 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 physician can make the difference between living with diabetes as opposed to suffering from diabetes," says Larry C. Deeb, M.D., president of medicine and science at the American Diabetes Association.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality.

The American Diabetes Association is the nation's leading voluntary health organization supporting diabetes research, information and advocacy.

Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin health care provider and a nationally recognized leader in efforts to improve the quality of health care. Aurora offers services at sites in more than 90 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin.
