    About the Verification System

    This Verification system contains data from the American Board of Family Medicine's database and is under the direct and complete control of the staff of ABFM at its offices in Lexington, Kentucky, with protections in place from alteration by unauthorized individuals.

    While written Verification of Diplomate status may be obtained from ABFM for a fee of $25.00 per physician, ABFM recommends the use of its online system as it contains identical information.

    ABFM grants permission to copy the information provided on this online Verification system for the purpose of maintaining a record of physician credentials or for activities related to the evaluation of physician qualifications.
