Many physicians are able to evaluate and treat Hepatitis C, including primary care providers, infectious disease physicians, gastroenterologist and hepatologists. Speak to your primary care physician to refer you to a physician who is a Hepatitis C specialist.
For patients who have had signs of liver failure in the past, including ascites (enlarged, fluid filled abdomen) and hepatic encephalopathy (confusion from liver disease), you should see a hepatologist for Hepatitis C and liver care. Liver transplantation may be possible if chronic Hepatitis C leads to liver failure.
