Best NYC Shoulder Pain Doctors – Most Insurance Accepted
After consulting the local general practitioner or family doctor, it may be determined that the patient have to undergo surgery in order to treat his nagging shoulder pain. Family and friends will recommend a different person to consult, but most of this will depend largely on the insurance type that the patient took out. If the patient has an open access plan or a PPO, he can consult a shoulder pain doctor of his choice, but if he has an HMO plan, it is best that he sees an orthopedist that his family doctor refers him to.
