Primary Care MD: Either you Googled your symptoms and came up with a self diagnosis, or a healthcare professional diagnosed your problem. If you have a primary care MD, he or should be the starting point for diagnosis and treatment. Whether or not you need to see a specialist may depend upon the findings of your primary care MD and their level of care as well as the availability of specialists in your area.
