Excluding colds and dental visits, how often do you have to visit your PCP's office, or your Cardiologist's office?
 
Are they follow up visits, new problems, or tests?

I go see my cardio on Nov 1st but he said if I am not having any problems I won`t have to come back for a year..I think he figures my condition has stablized so unless I run into some problems down the road they`ve done all they can for me..I`m contemplating going in for tests on some other things but nothing heart related

Sara, that's wonderful!! When a cardio tells you 6 months to a year?! You must be pretty heart healthy - Way to go!! I hope you are alright otherwise?

Big Hugs, Teri :)

re doc's office visits:  i can't count that high!  i'm so jealous of you all who don't go often.  i feel like i'm in one or t'others office at least once a week - cardioboy, gastroboy, oncologistgirl, diagnostics, therapists of various sorts, gad! eyes

I see my cardiologist every six months now, barring any problems. I see my internist every 3-4 months to keep an eye on my diabetes and general health things. It gets pretty costly, but important to do. I feel pretty lucky compared to others who are to their doc's so often.

I agree..I think my heart attack was worse (As a single event) than any of the guys I work with or most of the folks I chat with online but my medical problems afterwards as far as doctors,medications and future problems have been a lot less and for that I always feel lucky

in spite of the fact that i see so many docs, i feel lucky that, over the years,

i have finally got all doctors that i really like, that seem to like me, that are

competent, thoughtful people.  that makes a big difference when you have to

go in so often.

That is really important - having the right team put together! So far, I'm feeling the same way. :)
