Many doctors: Many doctors provide palliative care in their own specialities. However for complicated problems and issues there are now board-certified palliative medicine specialists. For example if you had pneumonia, your doctor would give you antibiotics; but if your case became complicated, your doctor would send you to a specialist--same thing for palliative care.
