Physician quality measurements include board certification and disciplinary actions.
  • Board certification involves a rigorous review of the physician's knowledge, experience, and skill in a specialty.
  • Disciplinary actions are actions taken to punish or restrict physicians who have demonstrated professional misconduct.

What this means to you:
To receive the best health care for your needs, consider choosing a physician who is board-certified and who is free from disciplinary actions.
