Student or Learner
I would like to know the difference between "1" and "2".
A: I have a cold
B(1): You should see a doctor.
B(2): You should see the doctor.
... the doctor = your family doctor, the doctor in your town, a specific doctor meant here
Note: We generally use "the doctor" because by saying this we normally mean the family doctor or the doctor we are registered with.
Hope this helps!
