Injured at work? Find NYS WCB Authorized Physicians specializing in GENERAL PRACTICE that treat work-related accidents and illness.
General Practice is a medical profession that treats acute and chronic conditions and provides preventative care and education to individuals.
General practice medicine is very similar to family practice. General practice is more focused on the treatment of conditions, whereas the family practice is more focused on preventative medicine. The doctor that does general practice medicine is known as a general practitioner.
A general practitioner focuses on the treatment of conditions instead of preventative medicine because they usually acquire their patients after conditions occur. Family practitioners generally start treating their patients when they are children.
