NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla., March 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Thomas Pane, a Double Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and founder of Atlantic Coast Aesthetics in North Palm Beach, FL, has just posted an educational video and blog that discusses exactly what a Board Certified Physician is and does.
As he noted in the new blog and video, he and his staff are sometimes asked by their patients about the definition of a Board Certified Physician—in fact, he said, he wishes more patients would inquire about what the term means.
In some cases, Dr. Pane said, patients don't take the time to do due diligence and research the credentials of the surgeon that they are entrusting to perform different plastic surgery procedures.
Basically, Dr. Pane said, Board Certification indicates that a physician has spent extra time, practice and study to achieve a specialized knowledge of a specific area of medicine.
"While someone who graduates medical school and obtains state licensure to practice medicine in a given state is by definition a doctor, that does not make that person a specialist or certified in any particular field of medicine," Dr. Pane said, adding that it means that the doctor has a general working knowledge of medicine sufficient to begin the next stage, which is typically residency.
"Board certification is completely different, because it requires the physician to demonstrate practical and theoretical knowledge of a specific area of medicine. Thus, board certification indicates a specific skill set and focus rather than a generalist knowledge base."
Anyone who would like to see the video or read the blog in its entirety may visit the Atlantic Coast Aesthetics website at any time; there, they can learn more about this interesting topic.
