Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Sometimes a hairline fracture is missed on X-rays. If pain persists, other tests (including MRI and bone scan) can determine if a fracture was missed. Tapping on the fractured bone can help confirm a fracture; it would be painful. It's best to see an orthopedic surgeon for this.

It's like walking...just put one word in front of another! Oh, so I have more space...OK, hmmm, when Mr Goldberg died, friends of Mrs Goldberg advised her to publish a notice; she wrote, "Goldberg died." The newspaper told her that, for the same price, she could say more, so she added, "Cadillac for sale."

(For an expert's answer to this pertinent question, it's best to consult with an infectious disease specialist.) A negative antibody test after vaccination might not test for the antibody to the segment of RNA (or other segment) used in the vaccine. Also, there are circulating antibodies and cellular immunity; the tests might not test for the immunity stimulated by the vaccine.
