General vs specific: Medical consultation infers a request for a general but thorough medical evaluation when recommendations are being sought for help with a diagnosis or for managing a known medical condition. A medical clearance is a specific request for ascertaining whether a patient is medically cleared to undergo a specific procedure, surgery, or activity.
