Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
Plastic Surgery & Facial Surgery
Seth A. Yellin, MD, FACS founded Marietta Facial Plastic Surgery, Laser & Aesthetics Center in 2011 in partnership with Marietta Dermatology. From 1999-2011, Dr. Yellin was Director of the Emory Facial Center and Chief of Facial Plastic Surgery at Emory Healthcare. As one of Atlanta's most well-respected facial plastic surgeons, he has treated thousands of patients during more than 20 years in practice with the goal of making each and every patient happy.
Dr. Yellin is nationally renowned for his expertise in creating a natural look when volumizing the face with injectable fillers and performing cosmetic and reconstructive facial plastic surgery. He believes that the ultimate test of a great plastic surgeon is the naturally beautiful appearance of the patient. "An aesthetic success leaves the patient more beautiful without telegraphing that work has been done," he asserts.
Dr. Yellin feels that teaching has made him an even better surgeon. "Teaching in the classroom, the operating room and on the lecture circuit both nationally and internationally requires you to scrutinize your work and hone your craft to a very high level," he says. Dr. Yellin has earned an impeccable reputation and is a sought-after presenter and trainer. He has appeared on NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and Fox Television News and has been interviewed by local, national and international publications as an expert in facial aesthetic surgery.
Dr Yellin is a recognized facial aesthetic master. He travels the country and the world lecturing on facial plastic surgery. Some of Dr. Yellin's recent academic articles and book chapter topics include: Secondary Facelifting, Direct Cervicoplasty (Neck Lift), Nasal Reconstruction, Facial Fillers and Post-Operative Care of the Aesthetic Surgical Patient. He is a sought after injector trainer for Allergan and is one of the busiest facial injectors in the United States.
No malpractice history found for Georgia.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
