A good way to know if your doctor is a specialist is by their title. Typically general practitioners, family practitioners or pediatricians are considered to be doctors. An OBGYN may or may not be considered a doctor based on the services they offer you (read our helpful blog post on this).

People who are considered specialists are professionals such as urologists, neurosurgeons, podiatrists…people who specializes in a specific form of medicine.

The best way to figure out if your doctor is a specialist is to use the doctor search on your carrier’s website OR call your carrier.
