What does a(n) Assistant do?
The doctor's assistant triages: asks about your complaints to determine the appropriate urgency. For this they use validated guidelines of the NHG (Dutch Scientific General Practitioners). They have their own consultation hours, in which they measure blood pressures, do pap smears (through screening), making EKGs, the fitting of Holter and 24-hour measurement, ear syringing. They also do part of the administration.
