Specialists and general practitioners share limitations


Yet, by their choice to limit their career area of expertise, I believe that specialists are more apt to appreciate their respective strengths and limitations, than are general practitioners.

This is not to suggest that there is a difference in empathy or consideration between the two groups. I simply believe that the onus to respect one's limitations is greater on the part of the general practitioner, because this must be governed by your conscience and an objective evaluation of your professional strengths and weaknesses.

When the general practitioner and the specialist appreciate the boundaries of their respective areas of expertise, communicate well and work as a team on behalf of the best interests of the pet, the well-being of our patients is best served.
