Go to a / the doctor


Can we not say,' Go to a doctor'? I have learned that 'Go to the doctor' is a fixed expression but I think that Go to a doctor or see a doctor is also fine to use. What do you experts think?


Thank you so much in advance.

If you are going to a particular doctor, use the definite article "The", or else use "a" .
