Clinicians who are board-certified in clinical neuropsychology have proven, through a rigorous evaluation, that they are fully competent. In most states (including Georgia), any licensed psychologist can call themselves a neuropsychologist without actually having any specialized training in that area. Choosing a doctor who is board certified gives you peace of mind by assuring the provider is appropriately trained and competent in his or her field.
Dr. Fiano is board certified through the largest board certification group in psychology, the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP). ABPP is the parent organization for the American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology (ABCN).
