German term or phrase: H-Arzt
I believe this is the abbreviation for Hausarzt, but just want to make sure- Additional info:this physician is also an orthopedist and chiropractor. Thanks for any suggestions.

English translation:Hausarzt; Hilfsarzt
Explanation:
These are the two possibilities offered in my Duden dictionary of abbreviations under H.-Arzt. I usually translate "Hausarzt" as general practioner rather than family doctor: an equivalent confirmed by this rather lengthy URL: http://www.dgn-internet.de/doc/public/Anbieter/KABV/STFrames...
If its "Hilfsarzt" you're dealing with, the Eurodicautom offers "auxiliary doctor." I'm not sure what position a "Hilfsarzt" has, however, so I don't know if something like this and "assistant doctor" are appropriate or if "Hilfsarzt" is more like a consulting doctor.
Note: I'm also not sure whether or not the presence/absence of the period after the "H" distinguishes this abbreviation from yours.

physician specializing in accident surgery


Explanation:
Just checking the web for the same term - I found this German explanation - thought it might be helpful for someone else:

H-Ärzte sind Ärzte mit erweiterten Kenntnissen und Erfahrungen auf dem Gebiet der Unfallmedizin. Sie sind von der Vorstellungspflicht beim D-Arzt befreit.

Die H-Ärzte sind an der besonderen Heilbehandlung beteiligte Ärzte. Voraussetzung für die Beteiligung ist, dass diese Ärzte - ohne die speziellen Anforderungen des Durchgangsarztverfahrens zu erfüllen - ebenfalls über besondere unfallmedizinische Kenntnisse verfügen


Which basically means, an 'H-Arzt' is a physician specializing in Accident Surgery who is not an accident insurance consultant /gatekeeper physician
