General Practice is an integrated medical discipline in which a generally oriented physician provides personal, primary and ongoing health care to a patient and his/her family.
Internal Medicine is one of the fundamental disciplines of clinical medicine. It deals with diagnosis and the mainly non-surgical treatment of diseases of the internal organs in adults.
Nephrology is the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease, kidney transplantation and dialysis.
