Three Optometry Faculty Attain Credential of Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry

Three faculty members at Nova Southeastern University’s College of Optometry are among the first in the nation to attain the new credential of Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry in October. They are Barry J. Frauens, O.D., Heidi Wagner, O.D., and Joseph Pizzimenti, O.D.

Board certification through the American Board of Optometry is a voluntary process establishing standards that demonstrate the Doctor of Optometry has exceeded the basic requirement(s) of the National Board of Examiners in Optometry needed to obtain initial state licensure for optometric practice. Attaining Diplomate credential by the American Board of Optometry provides assurance that a doctor of optometry maintains the appropriate knowledge, skills and experience needed to deliver quality patient care in optometry throughout his/her career.

The American Board of Optometry’s process of board certification and maintenance of certification demonstrates to patients that the optometrist is dedicated to providing exceptional patient care through a rigorous, voluntary commitment to lifelong learning.
