Specialist Doctors in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Specialist Doctors in the US

Over the five years to 2018, revenue for the Specialist Doctors industry in the United States has grown. Overall, specialty practices benefited from rising total health expenditure and increased demand from an aging population. Moreover, industry growth was aided by improving access to healthcare insurance. Changing healthcare policies and regulations have created complex challenges for many operators in the healthcare sector as a whole. In response to changing conditions, increasing regulation and rising operating costs, many specialists have increasingly shifted to working in group practices. Key growth drivers, including income levels and private health insurance rates, are forecast to improve or remain steady over the next five years.

A specialist doctor is a physician whose practice is limited to a particular branch of medicine or surgery.

This industry does not include physicians who work in internal, family and pediatric medicine.
