Find out what your doctor’s specialty is by checking his/her certification at the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). ABMS is a highly-regarded, not-for-profit organization comprising 24 medical specialty boards, that oversees physician certification in the US. See whether your doctor is board-certified in his/her specialty (such as Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, OB/GYN, Surgery, Orthopedics, Emergency Medicine, Radiology, etc.) and in his/her subspecialty (such as Cardiovascular Disease, Geriatric Medicine, Oncology, Endocrinology, Neonatal Medicine, Pulmonary Disease, etc.) Click on Is Your Doctor Board Certified on the certificationmatters.org page (sponsored by abms.org). Registration (free) is no longer required, but well worth it if required in the future. We encourage visitors to use the site.
