General Physician in Bangalore

A general physician is also known as a general practitioner. He is someone who does not specialize in one particular field but provides routine health care, which includes; physical examination, immunizations, etc. General physicians in Bangalore, at Apollo Spectra, treat various conditions, such as illnesses, injuries, etc. Most of the time, general physicians have long-term patients, and they treat both male and female patients of all age groups. Whenever there is an illness or injury, people first visit a general physician. If it requires intervention from another specialist, your doctor will steer you in the right direction. For example, if the person is suffering from kidney stones, which cannot be treated with the help of medicines and the patient must undergo a surgery, then your general practitioner will recommend a urologist.

  • JaundiceJaundice is a condition, where the skin, mucous membrane, and the whites of the eyes turn yellow. This occurs because of the yellow-colored substance known as bilirubin.
