As your dedicated Limerick GP, we are committed to caring for all areas of your health and wellbeing.
What Is A GP?
A GP, General Practice or family practice as it is sometimes known as is a primary care service. A GP or general practitioner looks after the day to day healthcare needs of patients.
Unlike other medical specialists, a General Practitioners knowledge is not confined to one organ, and they have skills for helping patients with multiple medical issues.
What Do GPs do?
Our GPs in Limerick are medical doctors who can treat a broad range of medical conditions. We can help you with a range of health concerns from acute to chronic illness.
An acute illness comes on quite suddenly and, with care from your Limerick GP, will only last a short time. This could be something like the flu, a broken arm or leg, cardiac arrest or an asthma attack.
Chronic illnesses tend to develop slowly and have symptoms that increase or worsen over time. A chronic illness might be something like high blood pressure, depression, arthritis, or diabetes. At Roxboro, we provide the services of a GP in Limerick city. If you are experiencing a chronic, or acute, illness, get in touch today.
General Practitioners also advocate for our patients in an ever-complex health system. We are dedicated to you as a whole, taking into account the biological, psychological and social aspects of your care.
Who Do GPs help?
As GPs, we use our training to diagnose and treat illness in all age groups. We are family doctors in Limerick, and our aim is to support everyone in your home.
How Do General Practitioners Help Patients?
Thanks to the intense training undergone by GPs, we can assist our patients with multiple health issues. Working closely with our patients to understand their concerns, we assess the level and type of care needed. Depending on the medical condition being treated, the patient might be prescribed medicine, require further testing or need to perform daily exercises.
In the event that a patient needs specialist treatment or urgent treatment, your GP will refer you to the required hospital or medical service.
