The ABFM Physician Directory provides real-time information from the ABFM database regarding the board certification status of family physicians. As new ABFM board certificates no longer show end dates, this app allows the user to determine if the family physician is currently board-certified. This app uses the city and state provided by each ABFM board-certified physician and is not necessarily the physician's city and state of practice.
-Real time access to the ABFM database to determine the current ABFM board certification status of family physicians
