VA Providers Excel in Brain Injury Medicine

Congratulations to the newest Department of Veterans Affairs Physiatrists to achieve  Brain Injury Medicine Certification from the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR).  These Physiatrists, or Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians, are trained in rehabilitation of neurologic disorders, and in the diagnosis and management of impairments of the spinal cord, musculoskeletal, and other organ systems.  The Brain Injury Medicine certification achieved by these VA Providers demonstrates prestigious recognition of their high level of skills and abilities in treatment of patients with painful or functionally limiting conditions.

ABPMR Brain Injury Certified Staff: Michael T Armstrong, Seth D. Chandler, Nancy L. Cutter, Blessen C. Eapen, Susan Garstang, Elizabeth Halmai, Leslie Harrington, Faiza Humayun, Andrea I. Karl, Darlene	Makulski, Rafael Mascarinas, Marissa R. Mccarthy, Lisa McPeak, Samantha P. Mendelson, Bryan Merritt, Melanie R Querubin, Nigel Shenoy, Jessie Simantov, Sarah K. Wagers

Ultimately, the measure of physician specialists is not merely that they have been certified, but how well they keep current in their specialty.   ABPMR Board Certified Specialists are leaders in their field because they voluntarily participate in lifelong learning to keep their skills and knowledge current. They demonstrate their commitment to quality clinical outcomes, patient safety and a responsive, patient-centered practice
