Is your doctor board-certified? He or she ought to be—or have a good excuse to have skipped or delayed this step. If you don’t know, ask.
Specifically, you should ask your doctor if her or his certification is up-to-date, as most boards require education, exams, and other qualifying steps every 7-10 years.
