Who is a General Physician?

General Physicians (جنرل فزیشن) are doctors who are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of illnesses that affect the human body. They also help people with the management of chronic diseases and are the first point of contact for the patient.

Unlike internal medicine specialists, a general physician in Bahria Town, Rawalpindi also caters to the ailments of children as well.

ایک جنرل فزیشن ایک ایسا ڈاکٹر ہوتا ہے جس کو انسانی جسم پر اثر انداز ہونے والی بیماریوں کی وسیع پیمانے پر تشخیص اور ان کے علاج کے لئے تربیت دی جاتی ہے۔ وہ لوگوں کو دائمی بیماریوں کے انتظام میں بھی مدد کرتے ہیں اور مریض کے لئے رابطے کا پہلا نقطہ ہیں۔ انٹرنل میڈیسن کے ماہرین کے برعکس ، ایک جنرل فزیشن بچوں کی بیماریوں کے ساتھ نمٹنے میں بھی مہارت رکھتا ہے۔

When should you see a General Physician?

An ailment of any sort merits a visit to the doctor. Rather than self-medicating and putting your body through unnecessary risk, it's best to book an appointment with the best general physician in Bahria Town, Rawalpindi.

From the common cold to headaches to blood pressure problems to stomachaches they are equipped to deal with a wide range of issues. This also includes injuries for which they can provide wound care, prescribe medication, run tests etc.

It is imperative that people with a family history of chronic illnesses get their physical exam done by their GP (جنرل معالج), frequently. Illnesses like heart disease (دل کی بیماری), hypertension (ہائی بلڈ پریشر), depression (ذہنی دباؤ), cancer (کینسر) etc. tend to run in families. Lack of timely treatment often results in a significantly more complicated and difficult to treat condition.

People should also visit their GP to get essential immunization shots, when due. Some people also need to get their flu shots in winters or spring, when there is pollen everywhere and should make an appointment with their doctor accordingly.

کسی بھی طرح کی بیماری ڈاکٹر سے ملنے کی طرف اشارہ ہے۔ خود کو دوا دینے کے اور اپنے جسم کو غیر ضروری خطرہ سے دوچار کرنے کے بجائے ، کسی جنرل فزیشن سے ملاقات کا وقت بنانا بہتر ہے۔

سردی سے لے کر بلڈ پریشر کے مسائل اور پیٹ کی تکلیف تک وہ وسیع پیمانے پر مسائل سے نمٹنے کے اہل ہیں۔ اس میں ایسی چوٹیں بھی شامل ہیں جن کے لئے وہ زخموں کی دیکھ بھال مہیا کرسکتے ہیں ، دوائیں لکھ سکتے ہیں ، اور ٹیسٹ وغیرہ کر سکتے ہیں۔

یہ ضروری ہے کہ ایسے افراد جن کے خاندان میں دائمی بیماریاں چلتی ہیں اپنے جسمانی معائنہ اپنے جی پی (جنرل فزیشن) کے ذریعہ کروائیں۔ دل کی بیماری ، ہائی بلڈ پریشر ، افسردگی (ذہنی دباؤ) ، کینسر جیسی بیماریاں خاندانوں میں چلتی ہیں۔ بروقت علاج نہ ہونے کی وجہ سے اکثرایسی حالت کا علاج کرنا زیادہ مشکل اور پیچیدہ ہوجاتا ہے۔

لوگوں کو اپنے ضروری حفاظتی ٹیکوں کے شاٹس لگوانے کے لئیے بھی اپنے جنرل فزیشن سے ملنا چاہئے۔ کچھ لوگوں کو سردیوں یا موسم بہار میں بھی، جب ہر جگہ جرگ پڑتا ہے اپنے فلو شاٹس لینے کی ضرورت ہوتی ہے ، اور اسی کے مطابق اپنے ڈاکٹر سے ملاقات کا وقت لینا چاہئے۔
