Pain Medicine Certificates issued by The American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation for Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine diplomates were transferred to the respective boards to maintain.

Published in Cooperation with ABMS is published by Elsevier in cooperation with the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). This authoritative reference tool provides certification status and complete biographical and professional information about board certified physicians. It is designed to help a wide range of professionals and businesses in the medical community with credential verification, referrals, research and more.

At BoardCertifiedDocs you can check a physician's board certification status, medical education and work history. With monthly certification updates and daily biographical updates, BoardCertifiedDocs provides instant access to complete profiles on more than 900,000 board certified physicians.

The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is recognized as a primary source of board certification information and has been designated by the ABMS as an Official Display Agent and provides this primary source data on the organization's behalf. NOTE: Board certification information (which includes MOC) is reported by the ABMS Member Boards. As a Display Agent, we display what the boards report through ABMS and we cannot change that information on the profiles. If there is a question about certification or MOC data on a profile, please contact the Editorial team (see the Contact Us page), to investigate discrepancies with ABMS.

The profiles on Board Certified Docs meet the requirements from The Joint Commission (TJC), the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC) and Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).

About My Alerts

Save your searches or lists of individual specialists to your account. You will receive an e-mail message when any of the saved information has been updated, alerting you to the change(s). 

You can choose to be notified when a saved profile has only a certification update or for any change. In addition, you will be notified when a physician is added or deleted from your search results, based on saved criteria.

The alerts lists are organized so those with the most recent changes will appear at the top. The My Alerts feature is now available to customers who are recognized by their IP address.
