          Abstract

          This paper is based on the empirical experience of the general practitioner/primary carer, but the principles of practice have been described in the last decades in many articles and monographs. It may be seen that the presented subject is highly current, not only theoretical but with the necessity of implementation in practice. In addition to familiar terminology, we present some new terms and key words that describe the situation in practice: fragmentation of medical knowledge; holistic approach; patient reduction; eternal patient; PC doctor; gnostic approach; accepting physician vs. direct approach. In the end, we ask a few questions, and their response in favor of a patient and medicine appears to be a priority.
