Frequently Asked Questions

Who is known as a General physician?

A general physician is a medical professional who diagnoses, treats acute and chronic conditions while also offering patients of all ages preventive care and health advice. General physicians make early diagnosis of illnesses that have the potential to develop into acute disorders before becoming serious and necessitating surgical intervention. A general physician is qualified in recognizing, detecting, and treating a wide range of medical issues like heart disease, asthma, eczema, fever and cough, hypertension, diabetes, and some mental health conditions.

What is the qualification of a General physician?

General physicians, also known as primary care physicians, are the first line of treatment for the majority of ailments. After 5 years of graduation degree from a recognized medical college, the aspirant general physician needs to complete residency for primary care practice. Basic medical training and the MBBS bachelor's degree are requirements for the residency. For the student to be eligible to become a general physician, residency should preferably last three years.

What diseases does a General physician treat?

Very often we get to see that a general physician treats the entire family, and as a result, they are familiar with the family's medical history. This makes it simpler for them to correctly diagnose certain of their patients' diseases and symptoms based on prior consultations. Additionally, they are aware of the warning signs and other illness indicators that someone who is unaware of their patients’ family medical history would not think to search for. Here are a few of the common diseases that general physicians commonly treat:

  • Bronchitis: Bronchitis is a common disease that develops when the person's major airways get inflamed. Coughing is one of the main symptoms, and bronchitis is sometimes mistaken for the common cold. Chronic bronchitis is a term used to describe bronchitis that lasts for a long time.
  • High or Low Blood Pressure: High or low blood pressure is another very common and very significant disorder that can cause heart disease, renal failure, and other life-threatening illnesses. This is why everytime a patient makes an appointment, primary care doctors also take their blood pressure.
  • Diabetes: Millions of people worldwide suffer from one of two kinds of diabetes. A blood glucose test can be used by general physicians to determine if a patient has diabetes.
  • Headaches and Migraines: Most of us often get a headache, but persistent headaches that range from moderate to severe may indicate a serious problem. Migraines, which can frequently be highly incapacitating, are the usual cause of very severe, intense headaches.
  • High Cholesterol: High blood cholesterol can cause several serious conditions like kidney problems, heartattack, hemorrhage etc. Many factors can cause high cholesterol, including diet, weight and a lack of regular exercise or physical activity.
  • Asthma: Usually beginning in childhood, this long-term lung condition results in persistent breathlessness, coughing, and wheezing. Asthma can occur due to a variety of factors, including genetics.
  • Bladder Infections: A bladder infection can become quite dangerous if it is not addressed. Millions of people visit general physicians each year for illnesses like urinary tract infection, a form of bladder infection.
  • Pain: If a person has discomfort in any part of their body for more than a few weeks, they should schedule a visit with their primary care doctor. The location of a person's pain can indicate a number of various things, and the primary healthcare physician will be aware of the necessary tests to diagnose the source of the pain more precisely.
  • Respiratory and Sinus Infections: An infection might become serious and may result in additional health issues if it is not treated by a doctor in time. It is always preferable to contact a primary care physician for the diagnosis and treatment because a problem that initially seems to be very minor might get worse over time.

Does a General physician do surgery?

A general physician specializes in primary care and majority of the time, they treat injuries, illnesses, and disorders without surgery. A general surgeon performs surgery, not a general physician. General physicians usually offer care that centers on or involves the use of common medications, physical therapeutic procedures, and non-surgical techniques to treat a variety of illnesses in patients of all ages.

For which symptoms should one consult a General Physician?

It is recommended to see a general physician if you experience a persistent pain in any body part, a high temperature, chronic cold or flu, cough, minor wounds, asthma attacks, migraines, urinary tract infections, dehydration or other medical symptoms. Contacting a general practitioner should be the initial step in maintaining and sustaining one's health.

Do General Physicians provide home consultations?

A general physician offers standard healthcare services like physical examinations and treatment for a variety of illnesses. They typically have regular, ongoing, long-term patients and offer medical and health treatment to individuals of all ages. This is one of the many reasons that general physicians can pay a visit to your home for a consultation. However, the decision to offer home consultations is up to the medical practitioner. For routine exams or general check-ups, home visits may be offered with some extra consultation fee.

What is the role of the General Physician in preventive healthcare?

A general physician is involved in long term care of his patients by establishing a bond with them. He provides basic healthcare to people/patients by treating common diseases and problems but he is also a person's first point of contact for many illnesses and is crucial to long-term preventative healthcare for people of all ages. Based on several factors like, family medical history, lifestyle, weight etc a general physician can inform and educate his patients about preventative health measures.

Are General physicians and General practitioners the same?

No, General physicians and General practitioners aren't the same but differ in their treatment approach. Typically, general physicians are able to handle practically any health condition. However they may recommend patients to general practitioners or specialists in more serious circumstances while still providing complete treatment.

General Physicians are associated with which discipline of medicine?

A general physician is not typically connected to a particular field of medicine. However, a general physician can pursue a specialty in a field of interest after completing their medical education. A general physician or doctor treats a variety of ailments, syndromes, and conditions without surgery. Also, a general physician may serve as a primary care provider or provide ongoing care to patients of various ages.

When should one reach out to a general physician immediately?

Your general physician can help you with a number of symptoms, conditions and illness that can be a sign of a big health problem. You should always consult your healthcare provider in case the problem doesn’t seem normal or stays for the past 3 days. For instance, a continuous and sharp headache with throbbing in one side of the head can be a sign or migraine, or headache with fever, vomiting and rashes can be a sign of meningitis. Menstrual problems like sudden irregular periods, delayed periods that don't come for 3 months or more, bleeding between periods and others can be signs of a number of serious problems like PCOD, PCOS, or thyroid. Hence, consulting your physician is very important when you experience something that isn’t normal and needs medical care.
