What is the difference between a general physician and a primary care doctor?
A general physician provides preventive care, can educate you about healthy lifestyle choices, and can also be a primary care doctor. They will be the ones you see for non-emergency medical problems, can diagnose and treat common medical problems and refer you to medical specialists when appropriate.
Primary care doctors are usually your first point of contact for any health problem. They perform physicals, treat minor health problems, and manage certain chronic conditions. Primary care doctors can specialize in caring for all ages or choose to focus on certain age groups.
