What does "provider" in this sentence mean?

" At the visit, write down the name of a new diagnosis, and any new medicines, treatments, or tests. Also write down any new instructions your provider gives you".

It seems to me that it means doctor?


It means a healthcare provider. Someone who provides medical care.


Thanks. So, could it be multiple different healthcare professions? But it is always a person right, or the term could refer to an institution as well? (not in that sentence)

It can refer to a person or an institution, but you have to decipher it depending on the context :stuck_out_tongue:
