You would not think twice about letting your doctor perform a check-up on you. But, have you ever considered turning the tables and doing a little check-up on your doctor? Herndon injury lawyer Doug Landau thinks it is a good idea to verify the credentials of any physician involved in your care.
In fact, the folks at ABRAMS LANDAU check up on doctors who provide expert witness testimony or consultative examinations in their clients’ cases.
Here are two websites that anybody can use to research a doctor’s credentials:
- The American Medical Association (AMA)’s “Doctor Finder” site provides basic professional information on more than 800,000 licensed physicians in the United States, even non-AMA members.
- The American Board of Medical Specialties’ site allows you to verify the board certification status of your physician.
If you or someone you know has concerns about a professional’s qualifications in relation to an injury or disability case, and there are questions as to what laws apply, email or call ABRAMS LANDAU, Ltd. at once at 703-796-9555.
