I typically would hear the verb cured used with the object “disease”. Doctor or physician cured the disease and healed the patient.

Agreed. And as an American speaker, I am also more likely to say "doctor".

Hello. Yes, that is correct. In British English -- Physician is correct, but it is more common to use the title Doctor.

Yes. In British English, we'd be more likely to use "doctor" than "physician", but your version is perfectly correct and understandable.
