All of our locations are ABC accredited facilities!
Each location of Befitting You has been accredited by the American Board of Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics as conforming to the standards set by the organization in the following eight areas: Administrative, Patient Records, Human Resources, Patient Care and Management, Product Safety, Performance Management, Facility and Safety Management, and Claims and Billing Compliance.
ABC accreditation ensures the highest quality patient care and service. Being accredited means that every aspect of our company, administration, employees, policies, and procedures have been examined and found to meet or exceed the standards set.

In addition to facility accreditation, each of our post-mastectomy fitters have obtained the ABC Accredited Post Mastectomy Fitters License, a rigorous and thorough certification process also administered by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics. An ABC Certified Fitter-mastectomy (CFm) is a health care professional specifically educated and trained in the provision of breast prostheses and post-mastectomy services. Each CFm is trained and tested in the following areas of service: patient assessment, formulation and implementation of a treatment plan, follow-up care, practice management, ethics and professionalism. Fitters undergo a minimum of 500 hours of education, must complete an NCOPE-approved mastectomy fitter educational course, must be trained under the supervision of another certified fitter, and must pass a rigorous examination. Additionally, each fitter continues learning and training and must maintain the required continuing educational credits in order to recertify each year.
Our ABC certified fitters are bound by the ABC Code of Professional Responsibility which is enforced by a Professional Discipline program. Each fitter is obligated to support and conform to professional responsibilities that promote and assure the overall welfare of our patients and the integrity of the profession.
Our commitment to accreditation guarantees you the finest in customer care during the most difficult of times. We expect the best of ourselves so that we can offer the best, most compassionate care to you.
