General medicine is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis, management and non-surgical treatment of unusual or serious diseases. The General Medicine Care Group provides a range of specialist medical care for inpatient and day cases and services such as acute medicine (emergency admissions), gastroenterology, endocrinology, diabetes, respiratory medicine, rheumatology, and cardiology.
It serves as the first point of contact whenever a patient visits the hospital. A general physician conducts a physical examination of the patient and then recommends necessary tests and diagnostic procedures. The results of these tests, the general physical examination and symptoms are then correlated to arrive at a final diagnosis. Depending on the final diagnosis, the general physician gives the necessary treatment (usually medication) to the patient or refers to a specialty department for further treatment. The department of general medicine at Six Sigma Hospital is favored by a multitude of people owing to the fact that is a convenient one-stop-solution. Add to this, the presence of talented specialists, modern diagnostic services and a 24-hour pharmacy go on to make this the all-round solution that patients seek.
