What is a general practitioner?
A general practitioner is another name for a primary care physician. In fact, many people use these terms interchangeably. Like a primary care physician, general practitioners typically help patients in non-emergency situations and are part of a “primary care practice.”
When to see a general practitioner
General practitioners deal with minor injuries or illnesses like a lingering cold, minor aches and pains, or a mild fever. They also provide preventive care services like annual wellness exams and vaccinations. For more serious situations like chest pains or symptoms of heart attack or stroke, seizures, loss of consciousness, head injuries, poisoning, open fractures, severe cuts, burns, or uncontrollable bleeding, you should seek emergency care immediately.
