Health Practitioners in The Bahamas
A general practitioner is a doctor that evaluates a patient in order to establish the condition or disease that’s affecting him or her. A general practitioner also provides preventive care.
In respect to medical tourists, a general practitioner is a doctor that acts as a “first” contact when there are symptoms whose cause has not been established.
If the situation is severe or requires specific and complex treatments, the general practitioner refers the patient to a specialist. Otherwise, the general practitioner will treat the problem him or herself.
Medical tourists do not typically visit a general practitioner during their trip. However, if a visitor gets an unexpected mild disease or has a minor accident, it is a good idea to see a general practitioner first.
Because the Bahamas has been a tourist destination as well as a medical tourism destination, there are plenty of excellent general practitioners here, and they are very familiar with the treatment of the most common health concerns that tourists everywhere commonly get, like diarrhea, sunburn and other mild medical concerns.
