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.
