What does “select specialty” mean in the search tool?

For a doctor to become Board Certified in one or more specialties — like dermatology, pediatrics or surgery — he or she must undergo further, extensive specialty-specific training and pass an exam that includes questions specific to the medical specialty.

There are many 40 specialties and 87 subspecialties to choose from. When a search for your doctor with a specialty/subspecialty selected does not find that doctor, please try removing or changing your selection.
