Avoid the ratings web sites when evaluating a docotr
As Dr. Placik has provided, the ASPS web site includes all Board Certified Plastic Surgeons.
Credential Websites/Links to Check Plastic Surgeon Credentials
The below internet links are those that can be used to search for plastic surgeons that are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, as well as knowing that they must adhere to ethical medical practice and have qualified by additional standards to be members.They include the American Society of Plastic Surgery and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Checking out your plastic surgeon
There are many different methods to evaluate your plastic surgeon. Referrals from other physicians and satsified patients that you know is another very important and valuable tool. I am attaching links to the American Board of Medical Specialties as well as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons:
Plastic Surgeon Credentials
You can go the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), which would tell you if your plastic surgeon is board certified. If you dont find him or her on this site, they the is a high likelihood that they are not board certified.
You can also go the medical board website in your state to check the licensure status of the physician you are seeking.
