What is General Medicine?
A general physician is a medical doctor who can treat many types of diseases that affect the body that do not necessarily require surgery.

Some of the most common types of conditions are as follows:
High blood pressure
Thyroid and Pituitary disease
Virus or flu
What kind of tests can I expect from a general physician?
A general physician can provide a wide variety of tests. This might include a urinalysis, an EKG, blood pressure tests, biopsy of a small piece of tissue, or a blood test.
Many times, if the medical condition is more serious or complex, a physician will refer you to another specialist such as a cardiologist or a respiratory physician.
