what’s a family doctor?


family doctors analyze patient’s reports and give prescription medicine if needed

this is the only family doctor to whom you will tell about your health issues

so they can give you the best advice because they already know your medical history

they also update everything on health card from time to time that what medications you are currently taking/you were taking

because in the case of emergency when you need to go to Hospital they may not be able to contact your doctor

but they will have all data already on health card so you do not need to worry about it

also, a health card is one more government’s issued ID
