FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Vein Associates of Edina (www.reesevein.com
) and Robert J. Reese, DO, its Medical Director, have earned Best Vein Care’s highest achievement as a Premiere Center of Excellence for the treatment of varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency.
With 45 million people suffering from venous disorders and with no regulatory oversight for the field of phlebology, it is challenging for patients to access the best possible care. As an organization that recognizes vein specialists for their commitment to quality excellence, Best Vein Care provides a valuable resource that enables patients to make smart vein care choices (www.bestveincare.com).
Dr. Reese voluntarily participated in the self-imposed regulatory framework established by Best Vein Care’s independent panel of physician experts. This framework or Standards of Excellence are composed of quality measurements related to comprehensive services, patient rights and health care privacy, a safe environment, procedural monitoring, patient satisfaction, continual quality improvement and community activity and support. Physicians exceeding performance within these standards achieve recognition as a Premiere Center of Excellence.
As part of Best Vein Care’s verification and evaluation protocol, a specialist completes a comprehensive physician query and extensive vein center self-assessment. The findings are then validated through a variety of mechanisms, which include, but are not limited to, primary source verification, referral recommendation, document evaluation, peer review, professional interview and on-site visit.
Recognition as a Best Vein Care Center of Excellence is synonymous with a commitment to pursue, achieve and maintain the highest quality of vein care today and we are pleased to welcome Dr. Reese into this elite group.
Dr. Reese serves Edina and the surrounding areas and represents the only specialists in the state of Minnesota recognized as a Premiere Center of Excellence in the treatment of venous disorders.
