The medical association hasn't approved them

They should not be giving meds

They may not be board-certified because they have not made application for their certification credential, because they have been turned down for membership, or because they have lost the credential for failing to continue meeting the minimum requirements.

It means that they failed their board exams. Probably not too bad if you are going in for a cold but if you have any medical problems then I wouldn't trust one.
