Gregory D. Schnose, M.D., F.A.C.P., of Lawrence, received recognition from the Diabetes Physician Recognition Program in May for providing quality care to his patients with diabetes.

The National Committee of Quality Assurance and the American Diabetes Association announced the award.

The Diabetes Physician Recognition Program was designed to improve the quality of care that patients with diabetes receive by recognizing physicians who deliver high-quality diabetes care and by motivating other physicians to document and improve their delivery of diabetes care. To receive recognition, which is valid for three years, Schnose submitted data that demonstrates performance that meets the program’s key diabetes care measures. These measures include eye exams, blood pressure tests, nutrition therapy and patient satisfaction, among others.
