General Practice in Southbank, Melbourne
A general practitioner or GP is a qualified medical doctor who can diagnose, treat and/or refer people suffering from any sort of illness/disease. A GP generally sees patients at the initial phase of treatment.
A general practitioner not only offers medical treatment for instant relief but also provides education related to general health and wellbeing. A GP differs from a specialist as a GP is not restricted or bound to dealing with a specific disease or specific organ of the body whereas a specialist focuses on a specific subject or organ of the body.
