General Practitioner


A general practitioner is trained to provide healthcare to patients of any sex or age. General practitioners often work as primary care physicians (PCPs), see their patients regularly, and are familiar with their medical backgrounds. Most people do (or should) see a PCP at least once a year. When you suspect something else is going on, your first stop is a PCP since they're responsible for your overall care and well-being. They can then refer you to the right specialist.
