General Practitioner

Description

A general practitioner, also called a GP or generalist, is a physician who does not specialize in one particular area of medicine. GPs provide routine health care checkup such as physical examinations and immunizations. They also assess and treat many different conditions, including minor or chronic illnesses and injuries. They often have regular, long-term patients and provide ongoing medical care to both male and female patients in all age groups.
