In brief: No
Paramedics are limited in their knowledge of diseases that are seen in clinics.
They are only trained to stabilize critically injured or ill patients. If the BP low they start an IV and give fluids. May give something for pain. Take vital signs report to the er physician.

This is a very narrow view of a Paramedics ability. Although they do not diagnose disease, they are highly skill in identifying signs and symptoms of life threatening conditions and providing advanced treatments in the field.
