In a hospital there is also a therapeutic department, where pneumonia, bronchitis or asthma are treated. When we have a headache, a stomachache, a sore throat, a cold or a pain in some part of the body, we call the doctor.
He examines our heart, our lungs, our stomach or the part where we have a pain and tells us what is the matter with us.

If you follow the doctor's orders, you get better; if you disobey the doctor you may get worse or even die.
