We get it – taking a day off and going to see the doctor is probably the last thing you want to do now
but it is really important to do it every couple of months. Some people are fairly conscientious about
making regular appointments to visit their doctor, although most people aren’t quite that regular, and
find it very easy to procrastinate until years end up passing. No one likes to hear bad news, especially
when it comes to their health, but the consequences of not seeing your doctor regularly can sometimes
be quite severe.
Here are some of the reasons why you should book your doctor’s appointment sooner rather than later:
1. It helps you to establish a good relationship with your doctor
If you never see a doctor, you can’t ever have a relationship with one. On the other hand, having a
regular physician means having someone who knows the intricacies of your medical history and who
will work with you to shape your healthy present and future.
2. It helps to keep your mind & body in check
By monitoring basic vital signs, a routine doctor’s visit can be like a system of checks and balances
for your body. we aren’t always great at noticing the symptoms ourselves. But having a routine mental
health screening by your physician can help identify warning signs – before they go from bad to
3. It gives you peace of mind
When we have health questions and concerns, it’s easy to feel stressed and being confused. Even
though the Internet can be a wonderful health resource, reading about your health issues online can
often lead to unnecessary worry and fear. Everyone is different and unique and we all deserve a
personalized evaluation. So instead of searching on the internet for a generic, or even worse, incorrect
answer – simply talk to a doctor in person to get the full picture.
Health protection and prevention is the key to staying healthy for the long haul. From simple blood
tests and vaccines now to mammograms and colonoscopies later, your doctor can help you become
the healthiest version of you.
The timing of how often you need to see a doctor can vary. The final question during every doctor’s
visit should be when to come back. It’s important to make a schedule, but not to forget to pay attention
to other changes in your body, family history, life circumstances and environment that may change
when you should go back.
