Peter Alford, MD of Frye Regional Medical Center has successfully earned his Board Certification in Sleep Medicine from the American Board of Internal Medicine.  Dr. Alford practices pulmonary medicine with FryeCare Physicians in Hickory.

American Board of Internal Medicine works to enhance the quality of health care by certifying internists and subspecialists who demonstrate the knowledge, skills and attitudes essential for excellent patient care. 

A growing body of research suggests that Board Certified physicians deliver higher quality care than non-certified physicians.  Board Certification demonstrates to the public that physicians have met the highest standards of internal medicine and its subspecialties.  Board Certification is voluntary and includes an exam that tests a physician’s ability to diagnose and treat patients with a broad range of conditions.
