Elliott B. Rosenbaum, Psy.D., ABPP

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Board Certified.

Did you know that only 4% of psychologists are board certified?  The credentials ABPP stand for American Board of Professional Psychology and indicate that a psychologist has passed board examination in his field.  This means that you are guaranteed that your expert is practicing at the highest professional level within his field.  Would you hire a physician as an expert who is not board certified?  When it comes to your clinical psychology expert, insist on board certification.
