Here are our most recent quality measures.  In the past, it was hard to compare health care providers. Our physicians and their staff know that their quality measures will be reported to Medicare and publicly reported here at this site. By taking this challenge, we expect  to demonstrate our  value to our Medicare Fee-for-Service patients.
