Is it time for a specialist?
Your lower back hurts when you wake up and you can’t lift the kids. Maybe your nose has been running for months, and you suspect more than an allergy. Or, you’ve been consuming over-the-counter antacids for years and your stomach still hurts. The question crosses your mind: Is it time to see a specialist?
Our rule of thumb: For a new complaint, your physician should have a working diagnosis by the end of the first visit. And, after one or two visits and two courses of treatment (approximately 1-2 months), if you don’t see noticeable improvement for your symptoms, it’s time to consider a specialist.
