How Often Do You Go to the Doc?

Growing up, I regularly saw my pediatrician for an annual physical, but when I hit college the only time I went to the doctor was for my annual exam. I rarely saw any doctor other than my gynecologist. These days, I only visit the doctor when I am sick but did just recently have a physical with blood tests and all. What about you . . .

I only go once a year to get my physical done. I seriously NEVER get sick...I think the last time I was sick was in 2000 or 2001. My PCP does my pelvic exam and all that stuff too, so I don't make a separate trip to the gyno.

I see my endocrinologist once a year, and so I only need to see my general practitioner every once in a while or so, since most of my problems arise from my thyroid condition.

My whole family is in the medical field, so my dad usually brings home any shots to me that I may need. We also take our blood pressure at family gatherings..I know, we're weird. And I only go to the actual office to get bloodwork or something I can't do at home.

all the time. I see a psychiatrist once every few months, I'm working on seeing a cardiologist (my heart beats way too fast), and I'm recovering from an eating disorder. this reminds me that I need to schedule a pap.

Hah, I haven't been there in forever...the dermatologist doesn't count. I am sure I am very healthy I feel great.

I don't know what it is about me, but I love going to the doctor for the annual physical and getting a clean bill of health (well, except for that cholesterol ...). We never went when I was a kid so maybe I'm just making up for lost time.

Every other month to make sure my iron is not lower than what it recently was... So far this summer I was there every week in June. That's what happens when you have a chronic illness. Everyone there knows me now. Yay..

I said a few times a year, but it's not because I'm always sick or hurting myself, in fact I hardly ever get sick or hurt myself. I just get really bad hay fever and excema and need to get scripts regularly. Plus there's always some new vaccine to get. (touches bandaid covering the last garasil shot =( .... )
