FAQs


A General Physician or GP is a trained medical professional who provides non-surgical healthcare services to patients, both young and old. A general physician offers services that are not restricted to a particular organ, like in the case of a super-specialist. General physicians treat a range of health issues, from respiratory to skin problems, promote preventive healthcare, conduct pre- and post-op assessments, and refer patients to surgeons when required. 


MBBS is the minimum degree that a medical professional must have to be called a General Physician, meaning that if a doctor has the MBBS degree attached to his or her name, he or she can be called a general physician. This requirement is stated by the Medical Council of India (MCI) and the doctor can take a general physician course in India from any approved institution. The general physician may further study for an MD to become, for instance, a Chest Physician with an MBBS and MD in chest diseases.

When deciding between a physician vs surgeon, remember that a physician normally offers non-surgical treatments. This physician and surgeon difference is key to you making a choice. For instance, if you are not sure about requiring surgery, you could visit a general physician near you. However, if you know you need to undergo an operation, you may want to visit a specialist directly.


In India, there is no difference between a general physician and general practitioner on the practical level. The two terms are used interchangeably.


You can seek an appointment of a doctor every 6 to 12 months, depending on your needs. If you have a chronic condition you can visit a general physician in Mumbai every 3 months and make online appointments via the Bajaj Finserv Health app for greater convenience.

A fair estimate for a general physician near you would be about Rs.500 per consultation. However, with a Bajaj Finserv Health healthcare package you can obtain doctor consultation benefits up to Rs.3,000.

  • Medication you may be on currently

Reach out to a general physician as soon as you notice symptoms such as pain, fever, visible infection, difficulty breathing, onset of allergic reactions, vomiting, sudden weight loss or gain, diarrhea, etc. It is better to go to a GP who already knows your history and background first and then visit a specialist in case you need to.
