What does "Board Certified" mean?

According to the American Board of Medical Specialties website, "A board certified physician has completed an approved educational training program and an evaluation process including an examination designed to assess the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to provide quality patient care in that specialty." Dr. Militello has completed the Board Certification process by the American Board of Ophthalmology, which is one of the founding members of the American Board of Medical Specialties.
