List of famous general practitioners with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

Every family has a doctor who is the first point of contact for any health related concerns. These ‘family doctors’ are General Practitioners who provide general treatment advice to the patients and are not specialists in any stream of medical science. Usually, patients contact them first and then general practitioners offer further advice on their treatment. General practitioners attend medical school and pursue their practice in medicine with no further specialization. Developing a close relation with the patient, sometimes they are associated with families. In addition to medical treatments, they also educate the patient on health and preventive measures. Classically known as family doctors, general practitioners have always been providing medical treatment for every kind of health problem from cold to bone fracture. Later, the medical fields branched out but these practitioners still offer their expertise and advice on health related concerns and guide their patients. From a village to a metropolitan city, they have been still lending their services with full dedication. Discover this space for the list of famous General Practitioners and read their biographies that include trivia and some of the most interesting facts about them and also trace their timeline and life history.
