Part of a team: Your family doctor is usually the doc who makes the referrals and is often the one who helps treat complications, such as urinary tract infections, fatigue, associated injuries, medication reactions, and he/she keeps open the communication lines between different specialties. Coordination of medical care is critcal these days.
