Summary:
The doctor - patient relationship is materialized in most cases by a special type of relationship, a type of affective relationships and particular emotional attachment of patient to the physician. This type of relationship especially stands out in the psychotherapeutic treatment.
This paper is based on a study conducted on a group of 63 pediatric patients diagnosed with various surgical diseases and it was monitored their postoperative evolution by the general practitioner.
The importance of general practitioner in medical activity is high. He made a first contact with the patient, and in time he starts to know his patient`s health problems, and also his life.
The doctor-patient relationship assumes not only diagnosis, orientation and postoperative surveillance but also psychological and affective counseling: the body heals faster if the soul is peaceful. The interaction general-practitioner-patient, especially if the patient is a child, creates a special attachment of the patient to the man in white. The diagnosis that the general-practitioner establishes is a complex bio-psycho-social one, the relationship between the doctor and the child can be compared to the parent-child one.
The general practitioner usually has very poor technical equipment. Having to deal with diseases of all human pathology, the general practitioner may never have all the equipment and tools needed, so he must resort to clinical diagnosis. To confirm the clinical diagnosis, the general practitioner is obliged to collaborate with other specialists.
Unlike specialist diagnosis, the diagnosis established by the general practitioner must be a full one, which concerns not only the organs, but also the individual patient, his family and community where he lives. Therefore, the diagnosis established by the general practitioner must be a bio-psycho-social diagnosis.
