Job Description for General Practitioner

General practitioners are doctors who work primarily within clinical environments, and they often provide services for whole families. They provide direct patient care, such as physical exams and assessments, as well as diagnostic tests, x-rays, and lab tests, all of which can lead to a diagnosis. When the practitioner is unsure of a diagnosis, the patient may be referred to another doctor. General practitioners also provide care such as managing wounds, infections, and injuries. Patients may be advised regarding test results and how they can improve their health at home through plans relating to diet, exercise, and care specific to their ailments.
