Why does it matter?
To practice medicine in the United States, a doctor must be licensed by their state. This license does not indicate what qualifications the doctor has. To be board certified, a doctor must complete additional standards beyond basic licensing and actively keep pace with the latest advances in their specialty to maintain their board certification. The latest advances mean the best options for you and your health.
