Those are just facts.

So the fact he is not really certified is picking on him?

Good luck with that.

The board certification part is certainly true. But, board certification doesn't prevent you from practicing, it is voluntary.

That is correct. doctors do not have to be Board Certified.

But he did fail the Nationally recognized Boards and then created his own fantasy Board.

Just Google "National Opthamology Board".
It was formed by Rand Paul for Rand Paul and is now in fact defunct.
He illegally advertised himself as a Board Certified Opthamologist.

Thanks, that was easy:

I took the American Board of Ophthalmology (the largest governing body in ophthalmology) boards in 1995, passed them on my first attempt (as well as three times during residency), and was therefore board-certified under this organization for a decade.

In 1997, I, along with 200 other young ophthalmologists formed the National Board of Ophthalmology to protest the American Board of Ophthalmology's decision to grandfather in the older ophthalmologists and not require them to recertify.

Rand Paul and his partner spent their time off from Washington operating on indigent persons needing care. Free!

Has anyone on here ever figured out why Ky people voted for Rand Paul vs Conway? Maybe it is because we don`t care for the Democratic Way ?

National Board of Ophthalmology its has been disbanded and is does not operate any more . Rand Paul is breaking ky state law by saying he is board-certified.

**The board remained in operation until 2000, when it was dissolved. It was reinstated in 2005. Since the certification story broke, the NOB again dissolved in 2011.*****

However, it is not clear how that entity would have comported within Kentucky law. Michael S. Rodman, executive director of the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure tells Right Turn,“The Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure does not license physicians based on their specialty board certification nor is it a requirement for licensure.” However, he explained that “Board does address specialty board certification through our regulation on physician advertising.”{***Rodman confirmed that if a board is not on the list, then a Kentucky specialist is prohibited from advertising himself as board certified. That list does not include the National Ophthalmology Board.*****}

Since 2005 Rand Paul has not been certified by any board recognized by the state of Kentucky, and since 2011 has had no certification since the NOB was dissolvedagain.

Take it from a person in California, democrats will make everything cost 30% more. Money isn't worth the paper its printed on here. If you have the power to vote a demo out of office, I beg you guys to take it. I don't care what you vote for, libertarian, independent, republican, green party, tea party or birthday party. The reason is, I am seriously concerned that the whole country will end up poor and in chaos. I shouldn't be having to worry about installing security doors, but I do worry about it now.
Are you nuts? Republicans want to do away with everything from Social Security to SNAP. Then they want to take heathcare away from the people and get rid of minimum wage laws. They'd like to see everyone sleeping on the street or in the woods and eating weeds and dirt. They're crazy, and the Tea Partiers are even crazier.

What? FNIAJ told me: "Just Google "National Opthamology Board". When I did, my posted response came directly from the first result on the list. Is that too complicated for you to understand?

You're good at name calling, but not very bright.
