Know Your General-Physician

Healthcare has become a priority, and early signs of illness may require prompt care. People make appointments with general physicians after experiencing minor symptoms like a skin outbreak, a cough, or a fever spike. A general physician is a doctor who specialises in general medicine and provides non-surgical care. They are primary care providers and, in most cases, a patient's initial point of contact with a medical professional. When you or a family member requires medical treatment, you can request a general physician consultation. In western countries, a GP is called a primary care physician (PCP). 

Who is a general physician?

General medicine, sometimes known as internal medicine, is concerned with the non-surgical diagnosis and treating disorders affecting the internal organs in adults. Doctors that specialise in general medicine are known as internists or physicians. A general physician recognises the signs and treats the problem accordingly. The doctor may examine the patient or request lab tests based on the patient's symptoms in person or via a general physician online consultation. For accurate diagnosis and treatment, lab tests are essential in general and internal medicine.

What a general physician consultation entails:

  • Assessment: Assessing a patient who may have contracted an illness or a condition. The scope includes patients with a cluster of complex symptoms, including swellings, unexplained pain in the body, urinary issues, or high blood pressure, requiring help to determine the cause.
  • Collaboration: This entails referring you to another specialist or doctor on the multispecialty team of experts.
  • GP consult: During your GP consult, your doctor will create a treatment plan to complement the care you receive from your primary care provider.
  • Tests: Blood tests, cholesterol screening, blood pressure screening, and other specialists’ tests and scans are all part of a healthy lifestyle and disease prevention.
  • Online physician consultation: A GP can also provide an online physician consultation to their patients.

Advantages of a general physician

A physician can work with you throughout your life, often seeing you and other patients over extended periods. They are familiar with your personal and family history, which allows them to make accurate diagnoses, check for red flags about drugs, and track changes in your health over time. They can help you manage chronic illnesses and address emergencies. When you need further investigations, whether it's for heart disease, cancer, or another major issue, your general physician can refer you to a specialist who suits your specific needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

A general physician addresses common health problems such as muscular weakness, headaches and migraines, cough and cold. A doctor will also treat you for metabolic and endocrine illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, obesity, and stomach problems, among other conditions. As a result, they provide a fast diagnosis and medical measures to manage your disease are critical. The general physician will address common health problems such as a cough and cold, which may be symptoms of an underlying illness. Your doctor can diagnose your ailment and recommend you to a specialist if necessary.

However, in today’s times, a rash, breathlessness, cough or cold could be preliminary symptoms of a virus or a pandemic like COVID-19 or perhaps dengue or measles. It is essential to make an online physician consultation and disclose your symptoms to get the required advice. 

Here are a few symptoms that indicate that it’s time to go see the doctor, either directly or by an online physician consultation. Whatever your situation, remember that for many conditions early detection can lead to better outcomes.

  1. High fever and a cold for more than 3 days: A fever indicates that your body is battling an illness. If left untreated, a severe cough that lasts more than two weeks may signify whooping cough, while persistent congestion might lead to a sinus infection. You may have the flu if you have a fever, muscular pains, or other flu-like symptoms. If your fever is higher than 103 degrees Fahrenheit (39.4 degrees Celsius) or lasts more than three days, you should see your doctor since a more serious underlying cause might be at play.

  1. Sudden weight loss: An unexplained weight loss might be caused by thyroid issues, diabetes, depression, or a chronic disease, among other things. Make an appointment with your doctor if you have lost more than ten per cent of your body weight in the last six months.

  1. Other reasons: You can request an online general physician consultation if you experience chest pain, abdominal or pelvic discomfort, your urine colour has changed, there are unusual symptoms after a treatment, and /or you experience fatigue, tiredness for no apparent reason.

Request a general physician consultation right away if you are experiencing shortness of breath or discomfort in your heart or chest area. Your doctor will extract your personal and family medical history, document current and prior symptoms, and carry out an electrocardiogram test. They may prescribe additional investigations based on the results of the tests to ensure there is no medical emergency. After reviewing the results of your reports, they may recommend you to a cardiologist for further investigations into the cause of any heart-related symptoms. Some changes in your ECG readings or scans may suggest an irregular heart rhythm or coronary artery disease. Finally, a cardiologist will prescribe medicines for heart problems.

General physicians have a unique blend of knowledge, training, and are highly trained medical experts who provide non-surgical health advice to patients seeking treatments. They prescribe medicines and provide treatment for significant or uncommon medical conditions until they are addressed or stabilised. A GP’s area of expertise includes all problems affecting the body. They frequently review patients before surgery and can provide management to reduce the risk of operation. They can also help with postoperative care and continuing medical issues or consequences until the patient recovers.

Women can consult a range of doctors for general wellness and to prevent future health concerns. The essential doctors a woman should see regularly can be her general physician and her gynaecologist.

A general physician manages their patients' health and medical issues and provides preventive health care. They prescribe routine health care programmes that include tests & scans, check-ups, and health counselling. They advise their patients to correct an unhealthy lifestyle or habit that may not be conducive to good health. The treatment plan might include assisting you in making dietary changes, quitting smoking, or losing weight to prevent diabetes, obesity, and smoking-related disorders.
