Dear General Practitioners,

Warm greetings to each of you!

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the latest edition of The Family Doctor Journal. As dedicated healthcare professionals, each of you plays a crucial role in providing Primary Medical Care to communities across India. Your commitment to serving as the first point of contact for patients, offering comprehensive care, and coordinating with specialists when needed is truly commendable. In India, General Practitioners (GPs) are the backbone of our healthcare system, bridging the gap between patients and specialized medical care. Despite facing challenges such as limited resources and time constraints, GPs demonstrate unwavering dedication in delivering quality healthcare services. Your tireless efforts in diagnosing and managing medical conditions, promoting preventive care and providing compassionate support to patients and their families are invaluable.

I would like to draw your attention to upcoming events for your reference:

  • March 9th & 10th: West Zone CGP Conference in Aurangabad (Maharashtra)

  • April 7th: World Health Day CME Program

  • April 21st: Online CME on Trauma Update

I encourage each of you to participate in these events as they will undoubtedly enhance your knowledge and skills.

At last, before finishing my letter, I want you all to follow the 4 D concept in your everyday practice. This will take you a long way.

  • Dedication: Provide the best care possible to patients.

  • Diligence: Stay updated, thorough, and attentive in all aspects of care.

  • Decency: Treat patients with respect, empathy, and confidentiality.

  • Discretion: Use professional judgment, maintain privacy in all interactions and keep the ethical values.

By adhering to these four principles - Dedication, Diligence, Decency, and Discretion - General Practitioners can uphold the highest standards of professionalism and provide optimal care for their patients. You are no more a General Practitioner but will be a Family Physician caring the every aspect of the Patient and his Family to give a Holistic Health.

Thank you for your dedication to the field of medicine.

Warm regards,
