Dr. Thomas P. Trevisani, founder of Celebrities Choice, has been board certified since 1983. But what does “board certified” mean exactly and why does it matter to you? Put simply, a board certified physician is one who has been recognized as a knowledgeable and skilled expert in his/her field by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Board certification is a voluntary process; it’s a process only select physicians go through to go above and beyond obtaining a medical license to prove their skill and expertise.

Although physicians are all legally required to obtain a medical license to diagnose and treat patients, the license doesn’t deal with specialties. Being board certified proves a doctor’s skill, knowledge, and dedication to their field and to superior care and results. To become board certified, the physician goes through a process that involves evaluations by peers and rigorous testing and assessments.
Since the board certification is a voluntary process, one that not all physicians go through, it is important that you do your research and only put your health and body in the hands of a named expert by ABMS.
