What is Board-Certified?
Many physicians claim to have “board certification” or to be “diplomates” of various boards or colleges of pain management. ONLY the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) offers board certification in Pain Management that is recognized by the American Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Board certification is awarded only to those that complete an approved fellowship training program after completion of residency and who pass a rigorous written examination. No other board certification truly exists. Dr. Siegfried was among the first physicians to complete an approved fellowship program and pass the written examination administered by The ABA. You will NOT find a more skilled, qualified, knowledgeable and compassionate practitioner ANYWHERE. Is your current pain management physician really board certified?
