CHOOSING A SPECIALIST
Specialists are needed to treat very specific medical issues. The search for a specialist normally is driven by the discovery of an issue, and almost always involves the patient's primary care physician.

As in other fields, the experience and qualification of the specialist are among the most critical factors.
