1 doctor agrees

In brief: Some do.

Is there a question of trust? Not every physician knows everythiing about anything! a generalist is just that, a generalist.
Each generalist has areas of expertise and general knowledge but may not know about specific this such as mcardles's disease. This may be best evaluated, treated and followed by a neurologist. However, trust your pcp and have a good working relationshi;p with him/her!

In brief: McArdle's

Most pediatricians miss mcardle's glycogen storage disease on routine screening, and this is understandable.
Junior goes through years of being called a slacker in gym class until some alert consultant makes the call.
