What is a board-certified physician?
A board-certified physician is a licensed medical doctor that has received a certification from the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Receiving an ABMS certification is a voluntary process for doctors that want to adhere to industry-standards for providing care to their patients.
Board-certified physicians have proven to the ABMS that they have the following credentials, skills, and experience to provide high-quality care which includes:
- Sufficient medical experience and expertise to provide care to patients
- Educational competencies inline with leading medical professionals
- The ability to perform duties with excellent bedside manner as evaluated by rigorous ABMS tests
