Austin Gastroenterology is accredited by the American Board of Internal Medicine and the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). We are licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certification has been the highest standard for internal medicine — and its 19 subspecialties — for over 70 years. ABIM certification means that our internists have the clinical judgment, skills, and attitudes necessary to deliver excellent patient care.
ABIM is a non-profit, independent evaluation organization held accountable to the profession of medicine and the public. Read more about the American Board of Internal Medicine.
The AAAHC is a private, not-for-profit organization that was formed in 1979 to assist ambulatory health care organizations in improving the quality of care they provide to their patients. It accomplishes this by setting standards, measuring performance, providing consultation and education where needed, and ultimately by awarding accreditation to those organizations that are found to be in compliance with its standards.
