Dr. Bill has recently been recognized as a Diplomate of the American Board of Bariatric Medicine. This award recognizes a high level of professional competence in the knowledge and practice of bariatric medicine. Diplomates must pass a rigorous written examination covering all aspects of (weight loss) bariatric practice and an on site inspection of office policies, procedures and records by a member of the Board. Less than forty physicians in the state of Florida have achieved this prestigious distinction.


Dr. Blackshear adds: “This award represents another step in providing the best in bariatric care for our patients.”
