WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Committee for Quality Assurance and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association announce that doctors David Abisalih, Dervilla McCann and Robert Weiss of Androscoggin Cardiology Associates in Auburn have received recognition from the heart/stroke recognition program for providing quality care to their patients with cardiovascular disease or who have had a stroke.

To receive recognition, which is valid for three years, the doctors at Androscoggin Cardiology Associates 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.
