5/4/2012 8:25:43 AM | by Anonymous


Physicians are health practitioners whose main concern is to treat people suffering from injuries and diseases. They also promote preventative health care. These professionals practice medicine in hospitals and clinics. The various services offered in these facilities are being handled by different types of physicians.


A medical doctor can either be a primary care physician or a specialist. The options for primary care physicians are family medicine and internal medicine. Family practice physician provides basic care for common illnesses. These medical practitioners cater to people of all ages and tend to a wide scope of healthcare. Since they can diagnose various illnesses and advice ways for maintaining health, many patients seek their services for general consultation even though they are not feeling something different in their body in order to prevent themselves to be stricken with disease. This is the reason why it is normal for these physicians to receive visits from same patients as the latter has become a regular client.


Internists, on the other hand, do not attend to patients under age of 18. They can learn and practice a sub – specialty of internal medicine such as cardiology, endocrinology and gastroenterology. Both primary care physicians and internists refer a patient to specialists if they encountered an illness beyond their practice.


Medical specialists are doctors who made themselves an expert in a specific area of medicine. They took and completed further medical education and clinical training in order to learn how to conduct advanced treatment for a particular part of the body. Some examples of medical specialists are pediatrician, dermatologist and neurologist to name a few.


Physicians play an important role in our society. They went through extensive training and education in order to provide us medical help. Without them, all of us will be guessing what treatment should be done once we got hit with sickness.
