General practitioner or family doctor
General practitioners specialise in giving advice as the first medical contact for all health problems.
After making the diagnosis, they refer patients to a specialist, for instance, an orthopaedic specialist for joint pain or a vascular surgeon for an elective vein operation. Many general practitioners have trained for the additional qualification of "Phlebologist", thus becoming specialists in venous disorders.
