    Data on the characteristics of office visits to general surgeons by ambulatory patients are presented. Individual profiles are detailed for physicians in solo and group practices, for those in the four major geographic regions, and in metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas. Information on the medical and surgical care provided by different age groups of physicians is provided. The condition of patients is described according to their demographic characteristics using such descriptors as patients’ reasons for visit and diagnoses rendered by physicians. Patient management is described in terms of diagnostic services, nonmedication and medication therapy, duration and disposition of the visit. Comparisons are made between 1975 and 1980-81 data on general surgeons, and between general surgeons and other surgical specialists.
