We hate it. But we need to do it. Don’t use excuses of “I feel fine”, “I don’t have time”, “I can’t take off work to see a doctor”, “What if they find something”, “let me get a in better shape before I see a doctor” stop you from making those so important doctors visits. Your insurance deductibles just refreshed so now is the time to bite the bullet and schedule your appointments.
Even if you feel fine, you should still see your provider for regular checkups. These visits can help you avoid problems in the future. For example, the only way to find out if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked regularly. High blood sugar and high cholesterol levels also may not have any symptoms in the early stages. A simple blood test can check for these conditions.
The purpose of these visits is to:
- Screen for medical issues
- Assess your risk for future medical problems
- Encourage a healthy lifestyle
- Update vaccinations
- Help you get to know your provider in case of an illness
