Types of Doctors  (विभिन्न प्रकार के डॉक्टर) Learn Medical Vocabulary

Welcome learners, you are with Learnex, where you learn English through Hindi. I have an observation to share with you, I am amused by the different terms we have for physicians, and the fact that they are seldom used.   I see people still use the common terms of an eye doctor or a bone or a skin doctor etc., but fail to use the right term for a physician.  Therefore In this English speaking practice lesson in Hindi I decided to put together an English lesson on the terminologies to identify the right physician for you.
