Doc, It Hurts When I Do That.

Doc, It Hurts When I Do That.

Then don’t do that.

Probably not the best attitude. Ignoring an ache or pain is not going to make it go away. Even if you have no aches or pains, you should see a doctor for routine checkups.

Oh, that’s right. You don’t have a doctor. So let’s see… you have health insurance. You (or your employer) pay lots of money for this insurance. But you don’t have a primary care physician, also known as a PCP, so you never use it. So not only do you not have anyone to call for a checkup, but you don’t have anyone to refer you to a specialist should you develop some life-threatening condition, like, say, diabetes or maybe A BRAIN TUMOR.

Glad to see you’re awake now. Find a PCP and make an appointment.

Otherwise, people might think you’re afraid to go the doctor...

Wow, I have health insurance and I don't even have a PCP...I've been wanting to find one but I just don't know who will really make me feel comfortable or make me feel welcome. It's not that I'm afraid to go to the doctor. I wouldn't mind at all. I actually would love any kind of check to know I'm okay. I really do need to find one now...Thanks for the tips!
