Well when I am having a problem I will go every couple months till its fixed. If I am fine I will just go to my yearly check ups. How often do you go to the Doctors?

Maybe I don't go to the doctors as much as I should, but I have been told that is normal for a guy anyway. I will go if something feels wrong, but I prefer to stay with my meditation practice as that seems to improve my feeling of well-being. - Derek

I used to only go to see the doctor when there is something that ails me that is worse than a flu. Now, that I have been provided with health benefits by my employer, I go at least once a year to avail of the annual physical examination and free consultations with doctors. Disease prevention often costs less than treatments which may include surgery, several laboratory tests and medication.

I have to see my doctor every three months to check my blood pressure. It is routine check, and my doctor prescribes the medicines I need to take. Ofcourse, in between too, if I have problems I do have to go and see him.

i only go when i'm very sick and i'm sure it's something more than a little cold or something. then, and when i need to go for school(vaccines, titers to check immunity drawn, etc.) it evens out to maybe once or twice a year. i'm going into the medical field, and i preach and preach people should go to the doctor just to be sure, but do i take my own advice? of course not. :P lol.

where i live they don't do yearly check ups. you only go when theres something wrong. i have regular medication so i have to go every couple of months to collect a prescription.

I go to the GP when I have a problem. I go to the dentist twice a year and I probably should go back to the eye doc, but haven't in a couple of years.
