At the doctor's

At his surgery the doctor admits his patients.

Can the verb "admit" be used in this sentence? Or there is a better way to express the same idea?

    Just for the sake of providing information, in American English the word "surgery" means a medical procedure involving making an incision (cut) in the body. Therefore an American would not use the British phrase "in his surgery". A doctor sees his patients at his surgery (British) or in his office (American). If the doctor determines he cannot treat the patient in his surgery/office, he will have the patient "admitted" to/into the hospital. That is, he will have the patient hospitalized.


    No,it can't. A doctor sees patients at his surgery.

    принимает - в смысле "хирургирует" :)
    производит необходимые манипуляции
