Above And Beyond The Call Of Medical Licensure

When we visit a doctor, many of us usually just trust he or she is good at what they do.  Many of us are intimidated by physicians, and don’t bother even checking their credentials.  This is a big mistake, and often a regrettable one.  Dr. Krikorian of St. Louis is a doctor who encourages his potential patients to check him out, because he wants them to be comfortable in their decision choosing him, and to be assured that he is indeed, very good at what he does.


Dr. Krikorian of St. Louis –The Diplomat


When researching Dr. Krikorian’s credentials, you will see a long list of certifications, among them being a Diplomat in numerous specialties.  Sounds impressive, and it is, but do you understand exactly what it means to be a Diplomat? A Diplomat is a physician who has earned a board certification in certain specialties, and this requires on-going education and training in those fields.  According to the American Board of Medical Specialties, a doctor who has a board certification provides “assurance of a physician’s expertise in a particular specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice.


Board certification began back in the 1900s as many physicians began to move away from the general practice of medicine and gravitate toward specialties.  Board certifications were created to assess a doctor’s qualifications in whatever specialty he chose.  Every doctor, of course, must have a license to practice medicine, but this just indicates a ground-level competency in diagnosing and treating patients.  Any physician who has graduated from medical school, completed residency requirements, and has a license issued by the state in which he practices, can set up an office and treat patients.  But is this good enough for you?  It shouldn’t be.  A doctor who has board certifications has willingly participated in training and education that exceeds basic licensing requirements, allowing him to demonstrate exceptional knowledge and skill in his chosen specialty.  And Dr. Krikorian of St. Louis has this in several areas.
