In the medical profession, a general practitioner (GP) is a medical doctor who treats acute and chronic illnesses. Provides preventie care and health education to patients. A general practitioner manages types of illness that present in an undifferentiated way at an early stage of development, which may require urgent intervention. The holistic approach of general practice aims to take into consideration the biological, psychological, and social factors relevant to the care of each patient's illness.
