Doctors treat patients by diagnosing them, or figuring out what is wrong. When doctors diagnose a patient, they begin by asking questions about the patient’s symptoms such as fever, headache, or stomach ache. They may ask other questions about things like past illnesses or family members who have been sick.
Doctors once made house calls to treat patients at home, but now mostly see patients in their offices or in hospitals. Doctors may also work for schools, companies, sports teams, or the military. Doctors are often assisted by nurses or other staff
They may only treat injuries to a certain part of the body, or only treat patients who have certain diseases. For example, there are doctors who specialize in diseases of the stomach or intestines. Other doctors are “general practitioners” or “family practitioners”. This means that they do a little bit of everything
