Primary Healthcare generally refers to a general physician, who are the first point of consultation for patients. If the patient consults a specialist like a cardiologists or a dermatologist, who are usually consulted by a patient, they are known as Secondary Healthcare. While Tertiary Healthcare are specialized health care which are provided to patients on the reference of a Secondary Healthcare.

In simple terms, our general physician is a Primary healthcare consultant. When you consult a specialist for a specific purpose, they are known as Secondary healthcare consultants. A tertiary healthcare consultant is someone who is recommended only by a secondary healthcare consultant .
