Abstract: The Consultation is the central act of medicine and thus it deserves to be well understood. The state of health fluctuates and studies show that physicians see only a small fraction of the health problems experienced by the population at large. The only study which could be found relating to reasons for consultation in Malta was that by Agius Muscat and Carabott (1989 MMJ) which compared the content of general practice in health centres and in private practice of 8 GP's working in government and private practice. This paper looks at the reasons for consultations in a small practice in which the author practices and attempts to examine reasons as to why patients consult their family doctor.
