What are specialist doctors?
Specialists are medical doctors who have completed advanced education along with advanced clinical training and resident experience in a specific area of medicine, which is then defined as their specialty. There are many different areas that a doctor can specialize in, which can include family medicine and women’s health. Typically, you need a doctor’s referral – usually from your family doctor– to see a specialist, as they provide specialized care and knowledge if you have a particular health concern or condition that requires their attention.
Specialists can be found in a variety of healthcare locations, from outpatient facilities and their own practices, to hospital settings. Specialists will work with your family doctor to ensure that there is a continuation of medical care and to make certain that your medical concerns and conditions are seen to and treated properly. With their specialized knowledge and training, they are especially well-suited to making certain that you receive proper care and treatment for your diagnosis. Unlike a general practitioner or your family doctor, they typically have knowledge of cutting edge treatments and techniques that can be used to help treat your medical condition.

Do you need a doctor’s referral to see a specialist?
Typically, yes you need a doctor’s referral to see a specialist – unless it is an emergent medical situation.
