Consulting Physician, Specialist, or Subspecialist
A specialist is an MD with advanced training and experience in a specific area of expertise (for example, an orthopedist, who treats muscle and bone conditions). They may be asked to help diagnose and treat a patient. They are usually requested for consultations by the patient’s primary care physician or hospitalist.RelevanceThere may be several specialists consulting on any one patient, but every patient is assigned to one specific specialist who makes the majority of decisions about care.
