ABR Verification FAQ
How can I find out if a particular radiologist, radiation oncologist, or physicist is certified?
If you require formal written verification of a physician or physicist's status:
We can provide an official letter of verification for a fee of $100 payable by VISA™, MASTERCARD™, or AMERICAN EXPRESS™. We are unable to accept any other credit card types.
Send your written request via fax or postal mail, accompanied by the fee, for processing.
If paying by credit card,
If you do NOT require a formal written verification of a physician or physicist's status:
The ABR provides a free online searchable database to find and verify the status of ABR-certified individuals. The database can be accessed on the home page of the website (www.theabr.org) in the upper right corner ("Check Board Verification"). Click on the "I" icon for more information about the database and instructions using it. Information on physician certification is also available online at no charge from the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) at www.certificationmatters.org.
Do you provide referrals?
No, the ABR does not give referrals.
Can you give me any background on a particular radiologist?
We will only verify whether an individual is certified and in which specialty or subspecialty. If an individual is still in the examination process, the verification will include that information.
Do you publish any mailing lists?
No, ABR data are kept confidential.
