Abdominal Pain. Who do I see?

Thanks so much for your question.  It's always good to see either an internal medicine doctor or very likely a general surgeon when it comes to diagnosing that particular kind of pain.  If the pain is from an abdominal hernia then a general surgeon is likely your best bet.  Good luck.

Abdominal pain

If you are having abdominal pain my suggestion would be to start with your internal medicine physician or a general surgeon to determine the etiology of the problem.
