Board certified pediatricians – The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) (www.abms.org) is an umbrella organization that awards 24 specialty certifications through individual medical boards for each specialty. Specialty boards have been approved jointly by the ABMS and the American Medical Association Council on Medical Education (AMA/CME) since 1933. Pediatricians are subject to review and certification by the American Board of Pediatrics (www.abp.org). All of the doctors at GetzWell Pediatrics are board certified pediatricians.
Board certification in all specialties must be renewed periodically and signifies a physician’s commitment and expertise in consistently achieving superior clinical outcomes in a responsive, patient-focused setting. Patients, physicians, healthcare providers, insurers and quality organizations look for board certification in the different specialties as the best measure of a physician’s knowledge, experience and skills to provide quality healthcare within a given specialty.
