I suppose this question would have been better posed to AVVO's Health panel. Medical students study all areas of medicine generally. However, doctors choose which area they will specialize in and only learn that area in depth. A doctor may properly claim they she/he is not an expert in an area which falls outside her/his expertise. You should consult your own attorney to protect your legal rights.
