strongly opposed!

It seems like common sense. A professional who has NOT had a certified education in a recognized specialty should NOT be able to advertise as such. It is deceiving and down right dishonest in most cases. This is already occuring to some level; and from my experience, patients have been adamantly appalled when they realize. Protect the patient and allow the truth to be advertised, not a "version" of it. I STRONGLY OPPOSE THIS.
