Some are general practitioners, working with patients of all ages on routine health matters such as preventive medicine. These often act as primary care doctors who pre-screen patients according to their symptoms, prescribe medication for common ailments, and refer patients in need of more serious medical evaluation and intervention to specialists. Florida doctors who are specialists have advanced education and training in a particular medical specialty, such as cardiology, gastroenterology, or neurology.

A doctor’s office will generally include sophisticated computer and medical equipment, especially if the doctor is a specialist in a particular medical field.
