Curious everyone, how often do you see your doctor?

Mental Health Doc = monthly
PCP = every 3 months

Wow Ferd, that is a lot. Plus, you are on quite a bit of drugs IIRC. Are your medical problems being managed ok? I know the drugs themselves can sometimes come with their own set of problems.

I hate the fact that my body is not working like it once was but nothing you can do about the aging process.

Yes Blue ,I am on quite a few meds,and my health/progress is really just stagnant lately(at best).There a some side effects,but not as many as one would assume.I was also in the hospital for some tests last week,and still awaiting some biopsy results

Its truly a tiring and draining way to live,depressing to be disabled,and would love to be healthy again.But more importantly be able to actually work again.Unfortunately that is not in the cards

Re: Curious everyone, how often do you see your doctor?

I have not seen my back specialist in two years. There is just not much he can do for me anymore, and I do not take any meds.

Re: Curious everyone, how often do you see your doctor?

Every 4 weeks like clockwork!! Set my next appointment up as I leave the office!! I wish I didn't have to be bound down by doctors, but no other option.

Re: Curious everyone, how often do you see your doctor?

I see my pdoc once a month and my therapist once a week. I'm fortunate they are both wonderful and caring ppl.

Re: Curious everyone, how often do you see your doctor?

I go on an as needed basis.. Now, I do have to pick up my pain meds each and every month -- (thanks to the drug addicts who deemed Florida the pill mill capital of the country; There are no exceptions to that rule & I never go/went to the pill mill doctors ie pain clinics) But that is basically I call tell the office I'm coming, and then drive there - its not an appt.

But I would imagine over all, its been averaging about once every 2-3 months for one reason or another for actual appts. I was just there last week for my physical.
