In this week's Your Health, we're talking preventive care.
1: Why should I go to the doctor unless I'm sick?
2: I already see a specialist (for back problems, Pap smears, thyroid problems, prostate cancer...)...why do I need to see another doctor (a primary care physician)?
3: When do I need to see my doctor for an annual exam? How often?
4: Aren't all those tests expensive (and time consuming) (and scary)?
5: What if I don't want to be on prescription meds? Isn't that all doctors do? What if I want to try something different?
6: Where can I find out more about this?
