When was the last time you see your doctor?

I want to be a doctor when i grow up! - I hate to be sick. When I grow up, I want to be the best doctor. I want to help people to get well.

Do you see your doctor regularly? Or do you see him when you're ill and sick only? I go to see my doctor every three month for checkups. In this world with our dietary intake which are full of chemicals and all, we'll never know if they affect our health, so i think a regular visit to the doctor will be good.

I don't go that often to the doctor, but I am a firm believer in prevention is better than cure. My husband is a diabetic type 2, and if it wasn't for regular check ups it would have been diagnosed too late and then it would definitely have escalated to diabetes type one. The same goes for me, no money in the world can buy back your health. So be wise eat healthy get enough exercises, be aware of your own body, take responsibility for your own health and go for regular check-ups. Make your local physician your friend, it will be a friend that will save your life one day!

I should really go at least every three months but I have not gone for over a year. I am almost housebound but as soon as the good weather comes in I will be going to the doctor for sure.

I see my doctor about 4 times a month and I will see him on Monday yet again. I actually have 4 doctors who take care of me. I have an appointment on Monday then one on the 19th then the 24 th, so I can say I see them way too much. But it is thanks to these wonderful doctors that I am here today. My health has been very unstable for the last 5 years and we are facing brain surgery to fix a bleed I had January 2nd of this year Cheryl

I also haven't seen a doctor since my son was born, 1 1/2 years ago. I feel great. My son had some regular well baby checkups, but now that he's a toddler we don't have to go. We don't take any prescriptions and use natural cures so we've never had a problem.

I go to my doctor every three months but it's my midwife and I only go to get my birth control shot. I haven't been to my regular doctor in about 2 years. I don't really see the need unless I'm sick.

The last time I went to a doctor was about four years ago. I was consulting medication for kidney stones then. He advised me to go under the knife to remove the stones. I didn't like the idea because I heard about people I know who passed their stones through their urine. I researched about herbal treatment and eventually I got rid of the stones the natural way. I went to another kind of doctor just two days ago. A dentist. I broke my molar a few days before Easter and I need to have dental fillings for my broken tooth.

I hate doctors in general. I only see them when I am very sick. Thank goodness I rarely need them! :P

The last time I went to see my doctor was to ask for some free counseling, but there is a long waiting list and she was doubtful that I would be seen, counseling in this country is very expensive. I also have a thyroid condition which has to be monitored and my levels measured by blood tests twice a year. I don't go to my doctors often, because I go to the gym, I am fortunate that I am very healthy.
