At its annual meeting August 23, 2012, the  Practice Partner Research Network (PPRNet) announced that Sammamish Diabetes and Lipid Clinic received for the fourth year in a row a "Best Practice" award, signifying excellence in patient care across a broad spectrum of clinical conditions.  PPRNet is a national primary care practice-based research and quality improvement organization, headquartered at the Department of Family Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, located in Charleston, SC.  Participating practices pool anonymous clinical data for research and quality improvement activities.  PPRNet is conducts studies designed to accelerate translation of evidence-based medical guidelines into practices across the country.  These guidelines are for prevention of heart disease and stroke, diabetes mellitus, cancer screening, immunizations, respiratory disease, mental health and substance abuse, nutrition and obesity, and safe drug prescribing.

Currently, PPRNet has 224 medical practices, representing over 1,219 health care providers and about 2 million patients located in 44 states. In its 16 year history, PPRNet has published over 48 peer-reviewed articles.   To receive a Best Practice award, Sammamish Diabetes and Lipid Clinic scored in the top 10% of PPRNet  practices. 

Additionally, Dr. Stewart was named a "Top Doctor" in the August 2011 issue of the Seattle Met Magazine, and again in 2012.   The doctors recognized in this issue were rated by Avvo, a national physician rating service, to be in the top 5% of their field.  As of December, 2011, Dr. Stewart had the highest Avvo rating of any Family Medicine physician in the Sammamish, Issaquah, Redmond, and Bellevue areas.
