ABPS Physician Board Certification Now Listed on Healthgrades.com

HealthgradesPhysician board certification through Member Boards of the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) is now listed on the physician referral website, Healthgrades.com. With more than 30 million patients conducting research on providers listed on Healthgrades.com each month, it is crucial that all of a physician’s training, qualifications and areas of expertise are listed in detail. Physicians who hope to compete in an increasingly complex medical marketplace must keep their Healthgrades profiles up to date, and ABPS Diplomates whose certification is not listed can add it to their profiles through the website’s physician portal at healthgrades.com/update/abps.

In addition to ABPS physician board certification, there are dozens of details that help differentiate physicians on the Healthgrades.com site, including:

  • Specialties
  • Conditions treated
  • Treatment philosophy
  • Procedures performed
  • Experience
  • Education
  • Hospital affiliation(s)
  • Patient satisfaction ratings
  • Malpractice filings or sanctions (if any)

Healthgrades.com is quickly becoming one of the most effective tools for patient referrals, thanks in part to the in-depth data available on each physician. Patients who find outdated information about a physician are less likely to click through to request an appointment. Conversely, patients who see ABPS physician board certification confirmation on Healthgrades.com know that the specialist has proven that he or she possesses the knowledge and experience to provide the best patient care available.

Patient Care Is Our Priority

Medical organizations throughout North America understand that our rigorous certification standards prove that ABPS Diplomates are capable of delivering the best patient care possible.

I feel truly blessed and grateful to be an internal medicine board-certified diplomate with the American Board of Physician Specialties. Their ongoing, steadfast commitment to physician board(s) enhancement, forward focused vision, and tenacity is second to none. ABPS has become a recognized choice in Physician Board Certification.

To be the best, you must measure yourself against the best. Achieving Board Certification in Emergency Medicine by the ABPS gave me the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of the art of EM in an objective way. The high bar that ABPS sets for candidates to be allowed to take both the written and oral exam is a testament to ABPS's rigorous vetting of one's ability to practice Emergency Medicine at a high level. By maintaining these credentials, I've been able to instill confidence in my abilities at the department/employer level and ultimately with the patients that choose to seek emergency care at the facilities at which I practice.

The American Board of Physician Specialties has supported the entire field of Integrative Medicine in sponsoring our board. It has been so validating of the importance of prevention-oriented and holistic approaches to care while emphasizing the scientific basis of this specialty to have it recognized by ABPS. I am proud to have been one of the first groups to be board certified by ABPS in Integrative Medicine, leading the way for others committed to training in this specialty.
