Your family doctor is capable of managing your blood pressure, unless the cause of the elevation is something that falls into another specialty..You could consult a cardiologist..


M
Maybe a cardioologist? But a primary care physician is well able to deal with it, as it is a very common problem.

Most family practioners and doctors trained in internal medicine can treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Hypertension is a ubiquitous disease and is a condition that most doctors are comfortable treating without requiring any additional specialized training.

There are cases, however, where an expert may be desired.

If you have really difficult to control hypertension, you may wish to see a hypertension expert. There is no formalized board or accrediting agency for hypertension experts, so you really have to find someone to make a referral for you. Often these guys/gals are either internal medicine docs with a special interest in hypertension or cardiologists who are also interested in treating hypertension. Also, they are usually found in academic centers where there may be a lot of research done in hypertension.

Finally, if your case of hypertension is due to a rare condition such as pheochromocytoma, adrenal tumors, renal artery stenosis, etc), you may wish to see a specialist in that respective field. ie endocrinologist for pheochromocytoma.
