    • I do.  I am seeing a new doctor this year since we moved.  Also, I would like to know what’s going on with my neck as it’s been bothering me for the last couple weeks.

    • No.  It’s been about 8 years.  I suppose I should do that again one of these days.  I have a lot more faith in alternative medicine practitioners than in MDs.

    • It’s been awhile. I say I should but I don’t so I need to be serious about it.
      Diane, good for you for getting a physical exam every year. I hope your neck pain gets taken care of soon. Take care.

    • I used too! Before moving to Memphis I did faithfully ohhhh

      Since being here I have not been happy with their bedside manner in one way or another. I will say tho that the eye Dr has gotten it right tho so I will not include him in my dissatisfaction.

      Dentist- I think has put a crown on wrong and when I asked about it she said it was fine. Well what about the gap you left where food gets stuck? ” make sure you‘re flossing“!!!!

      Gyno- as I am laying back on the table being examined. ” don’t go to Drs they will kill you”  me- ummm should I just leave now then? ” just as soon as we‘re done with your mammogram”

      Cardiologist- after all the tests were performed ” I don’t know why we‘re wasting our time here there is nothing wrong”

      Med Dr-  in response to my bck pain ” lets send you to a cardiologist”

      Chiropractor 2 years after med dr and cardiologist-  ” back pain? Lol that’s just gas built up in there, ou need more fiber and well pass gas”  me- red faced........ Ok Dr thanks for helping me with that back pain.

      Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!

    • Vikki..lol..you hit the nail on the head with some doctors, and my mom lives in NC and complains about every doctor except her eye doctor..go figure!

      Diane..very happy that you are seeing a doctor about your neck pain, that has been going on too long.

      I visit my GP every three to four months because I am on medicine that has to be monitored regularly as it can affect the liver enzymes..it is all tied in with my fibromyalgia...so routine blood work is crucial.  I also see an Ear, Nose, Throat specialist every month as I had three ear surgeries and need careful maintenance.  My dentist (who I love) every six months for cleanings, My gyne every year for check-ups and a mammogram every year, I was seeing a doctor for the fibro, but that has ceased, at least for now.  I am due for an eye exam and a visit with the Endocrinologist for my thyroid.

      Geez, I spend a lot of time with doctors.tongue out
