Depends . . .: Best specialist depends upon who you ask. Also depends upon your insurance (or are you willing to pay out of pocket). Also depends upon how far you're willing to drive (northern california is a rather large geographic area). Start by looking thru insurance book or their website. Then ask your family doc (plus family & friends) who s/he likes. Finally, consider academic centers & athletic teams.
