General Physician in Jaipur

A general physician is a medical care provider who does not have a specialization in any one discipline and provides diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of conditions. A general physician focuses on promoting, maintaining, or restoring the health of a person by diagnosing and treating numerous diseases and disorders concerning the various neurological, respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, endocrine and other critical systems of the body.  A general physician has a comprehensive knowledge of the human anatomy and the ailments affecting it. A physician who specializes in a certain field of medicine becomes a “specialist”.

At Apollo Spectra, we have the top physicians in Jaipur who provide the best diagnosis, treatment, and care for a wide range of diseases and disorders.

What diagnostic tests can General Physicians perform?
General physicians can perform some basic tests depending on your conditions. These tests commonly include Laboratory tests such as blood tests. They may also occasionally perform a biopsy, a diagnostic test in which a small piece of tissue or cells are drawn and sent to a pathologist for analysis. In most cases, general physicians will refer you to radiologists or other specialists to perform tests such as a cardiologist who may perform an ECG or a gastroenterologist who is trained in performing an endoscopy. A physician then studies the reports of these tests and suggest a treatment accordingly.
What are the roles of a general physician?
