The way physician can diagnosis the problem & consult the patient accordiing to his/her problem(i'm talking just superficially bt there is toooo much deep meaning), robots or AI have lessor chance to enter in this field of consultancy. & if robot will take over this than it will not be consider as actual like physician's consultation.

Undifferentiated presentation of symptoms along with high level of interpersonal skills needed to manage patient expectation and wishes. I Suspect AI would lead to unnecessary investigation, over diagnosis with the increase risk of finding incidentalomas in the cohort of patients dealt with in the community.

There are several ways in which AI could potentially replace family doctors in the future. Here are some convincing arguments:

Improved accuracy: AI systems can process and analyze vast amounts of medical data much more quickly and accurately than humans. This means that they can potentially diagnose illnesses with higher accuracy and specificity than family doctors.

Cost-effective: As AI technology continues to advance, it is becoming increasingly cost-effective to deploy AI-powered medical systems. This means that it may be more financially viable to use AI systems to provide medical advice and diagnosis than to employ a large number of human doctors.

Availability: Many people in remote or underserved areas may not have access to a family doctor. AI-powered medical systems can potentially provide medical advice and diagnosis to these populations, increasing access to healthcare.

Personalized care: AI systems can leverage large amounts of data to provide personalized medical advice to individuals. This means that patients could potentially receive more tailored and effective treatments than they would from a human doctor who may not have access to the same level of data.

24/7 availability: AI-powered medical systems can potentially provide medical advice and diagnosis 24/7, which may be particularly beneficial in emergency situations.

It is important to note, however, that the replacement of family doctors by AI systems is not without its challenges. One of the biggest challenges is the ethical considerations surrounding the use of AI in healthcare, particularly with regards to data privacy and informed consent. Additionally, there may be concerns around the accuracy and reliability of AI-powered medical systems, particularly if they are not properly tested and validated. Nonetheless, as AI technology continues to advance, it is likely that we will see increased use of AI-powered medical systems to complement or even replace human doctors in certain situations.
