General Practitioner

General practitioners are medical doctors who diagnose and treat most types of health conditions or diseases and do not specialize in any particular area of medicine. They provide basic medical service for males and females of all age groups.

General practitioners usually complete a 1- to 2-year residency following medical school. There is no board certification for general practitioners.
