General Practice − Family Medicine
Although the concept of family medicine is somewhat new to us, its importance in the primary care is difficult to overestimate. It provides long-term care for the health of the person and all members of his family, regardless of the nature of the disease, the state of organs and systems of the body in all periods of human life.
HEALTH IS WITH US!
A general practitioner or family doctor is a physician who provides primary health care to people of all ages and genders.
A family doctor is the first person to whom the patient seeks medical care. The family doctor also deals with prevention of infectious diseases, i.e. vaccination. Within the competence of the family doctor is the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases, referral to physicians of other specialties, medical checkups and follow ups of patients.
