Unfortunately for me it is about 4 times a year (every 3 months). They don't like refilling prescriptions without see you and running labs etc...

Did I say getting old sucks?

As I get older... a lot more, and more different docs. Probably 3-4 on average, counting annual physical and a couple of specialists.

Never. Don't want to and with my health "insurance" you would really have to be in a life threatening circumstance to even consider it.

Not too often. The doctors mess you up as often as they fix you.

Generally once a year, or as necessary.

Statistically about 0.08 (or less) times annually? Ontario has Health Coverage so it's not a matter of economics at all wink

Couple times in the past 10. Once for a papilloma virus freeze that got out of hand on my knuckle then another time for mandatory work physical.

My BP has been 175/140 for over 2 years.

I should get that lowered.

Would bleeding a pint knock it down?

Wow!
You need to lower your stress levels.
And (Pop_rivit voice) you need to eat and drink healthier.

And each time you stress while at the dealer, YOU should be the stresser, not the other way around...
