I would suggest you pick a general practitioner or an internist to coordinate your care. And then that primary care physician will send you out to consult with any specialists that your symptoms indicate. THen the specialists will consult back with your primary who will coordinate the care you need. When it comes to world class healthcare it is a team based approach and the different team members should be coordinating their efforts with each other. That is the idea behind primary physician care. So pick your primary care physician and let them know everything that is going on. I suggest you write down what is wrong, and write down any observations and questions you have. And do not be afraid to ask questions! Especially if you don't understand something they said or are doing. Good luck.

A GP or general practitioner (family doc). He or she can refer you to the specialists if you need one but can probably help you with some if your issues and do so much less expensively than a specialists.

you need to see P.C.P. (Primary care physician) and have a complete blood work-up to see what if any of your levels are off high or low (make sure you tell your doctor your symptoms) and if the answers you get sound fishy get a second opinion
