OPENING OF THE NATIONAL DIRECTORY OF SPINE PHYSICIANS
The American Academy of Spine Physicans (AASP) is opening up its National Directory of Spine Physicans (NDSP) in an effort to further develop the AASP Physician Referral Network, expand the Spinecare Awareness Initiative and provide the public with additional access to spine physicians.
Qualified chiropractic physicans and neurosurgeons can have a listing on the highly visible Directory at no charge. Each physican will also receive the Academy News via email as a benefit of being an AASP Directory Member. Members of the AASP will continue to receive special acknowledgment on the directory so that all users are aware of those physicians who have made the commitment to conservative and cooperative spinecare and who have also applied and been accepted as members of the Academy. Members of the AASP who receive Diplomate status with American Academy of Spine Physicians (DAASP) or Fellow status with the American College of Spine Physicians (FACSP) will continue to receive special acknowledgment of their academic distinction on the directory.
The AASP is committed to improving the online directory. This is often the first place the public comes to look for a spine specialist and to find answers to their spinecare related questions. Subsequently, it remains imperative that the directory be complete, accurate and user friendly. The physician search function will be expanded to increase accuracy and efficiency of use and the listings will be updated and expanded.
We ask that all physicans currently listed on the directory take a moment to go to the Directory at http://www.spinephysicians.net/, to review your profile. You may go to the online directory home page and go to the area titled Modify Your Profile to update your information or you may notify the membership coordinator via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any corrections or additions. For those who are not currently listed you may set up your profile online by going the appropriate area titled Add Your Practice on the Directory Home Page at http://www.spinephysicians.net/. The opening up of the National Directory of Spine Physicans will facilitate interdisciplinary communication and enhance the public awareness of available specialists in this field.
