Feel free to comment.
Yes - Always, it's necessary.
No - They frighten me.
At times - It depends on the circumstance.
Feel free to comment.
but the question should be ...........does my doctor like to see me?
he is amazing and I wouldn't trade him in for anything.
Yes. I heal well, thankfully. I have great health as well, again thankfully. But I have no issue testing and seeing what is up. To me people who beat cancer early or avoid a heart attack have preemptively looks for problems to solve. Cant really do that without lab work.
I don't "like" going to the doctor, no. But it's one of those things you must do to take proper care of yourself.
Myself included, I don't know anyone who "likes" to go to the doctor. It is a necessity in order to maintain good health. A once a year physical exam is almost a must to make sure all your blood work is good and it gives you great peace of mind to know you are healthy.
To be Honest ... my Dentist, and Periodontist, are both Cuter!
Butt, my Doctor, and Dermatologist, get to see a LOT more of Me!

Luckily, so far, I've mostly just enjoyed coming from the doctor.

That's why I put it off for so long - I want it to feel like I'm a child that's just discovered the pure joy of his very first candy bar.

Yes, because he likes Bammer.
What I don't like is the accompanying insurance paperwork.
"Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

My doctor is always late, and takes forever to examine patients... so I have to wait in the waiting room for 24 centuries, and then I have to wait 12 centuries in the tiny, overly air conditioned examining room in my underwear. Simply getting a checkup takes up a good chunk of the day, and there's nothing I hate more than being kept waiting.
The actual exam goes along smoothly though, because I'm pretty healthy.
Yes, I like anal probing massages.
GP: I used to like it more when I got to strip down and sit around naked but now I have to put on a stupid paper hospital gown so it's much less enjoyable.
Dermatologist: Always comes up with solutions to my trivial problems and concerns. The guy used to be really handsome, but over the years he's taken to using so many fillers that--although he doesn't have line or wrinkle in his face and is pushing fifty--he's lost all definition and with it a lot of his appeal. Not the only MD or nurse I've seen go down this road.
I don't like to go to the doctor, but I don't hate it either. Although I would rather not go, I take it in stride. It's not toooo bad.
Hate it...doctor's surgeries are always too cold (ensures shrinkage) then the doctor is ugly as well (double shrinkage).
Plus now that I'm here in America there is insurance hassles. Obamacare my ass!
No. The co-pays are too expensive.
I have a great dermatologist & nephrologist but my primary care doctor leaves something to be desired.
And all my health care professionals are female.
No, can't say that I enjoy it.
If only because I'm worried that one step in leads to the announcement of a need for blood tests, which I simply cannot abide.
I'm sorry to have kept you waiting, but I'm afraid my walk has become rather sillier recently...
Yep, i love going....means i get away from insane crazy bitches at work for a whiles !
He's a sweet, understanding older man, i'm very fond of him!
I especially like visiting my dentist twice a year because I have 3 cavities from childhood years but now I take great measure at preventative dentistry as I am petrified by the idea of losing any teeth the older I get.
I used to love the dentist, simply because they made pain go away. On the other hand, I've been to 2 different dentists in Philly and one of them was absolute crap and has given me an abcess that I haven't been able to get rid of completely for two and a half years or so now.
As for other doctors, it depends entirely on what I'm going in for, whether they're competent and whether they're take me seriously.

The doctor I use to have gave me a hard-on, he was so hot!!! The one I got now isn't the same, but I go anyway.
I can't imagine how anyone would "like" going to see a doctor. I at times like the relief from what ever physical ailment I might have had that the doctor afforded me.
The insurance end is the part I hate.
No , i bloody hate it .
I've only had to get my kit off once, and that's because my balls swelled up and the guy needed to have a look. Otherwise, fully dressed. I'd find it awkward if I was going because I had, say, an inner ear issue and I was asked to strip off.
^Those two posts really confused me as well . Reminds you off all the old jokes , but hey , it is America . Their medical-practices , do sometimes make me *ponder* .
I love my Doc. He helps to keep me alive.
I do quite like the doctor I have now. He is very direct and upfront with me and I appreciate that very much....it is a good fit.
I can't say I "like" going...or that I hate it either. I go because I have to and that is how I see it.
As to the OP's question, it does not bother me to see a doctor.
Everyone wants to be heard. No one wants to listen.
Only for a general check-up.

I don't like going to the doctor but I'm not afraid of them
^Another kicking English grammar post
I doubt anyone in their right mind LIKES to go to the doctor. That in itself means you either feel like shit or think something is physically wrong with you. Who would like that?
The company that I work for, which I refer to as "The Kingdom", out of financial, and personal, concerns, became self insured, and started up their own clinics/labs/dentists/eye care/pharmacy/dieticians/gyms, etc., etc., to hire their own health professionals, and control costs. Since then, they've also offered their services to other companies, and "our" medical division is now providing health care from coast to coast.
The main thing is being Very Proactive about Prevention, and encouraging employees to be Engaged about Health!
SO ... My GP works for the same company that I do, and there is a clinic on-site.
I just recently did "Labs" (blood, urine, etc.), and had a mandatory "chat" with my Doc.
The lab results were good (the meds are working), and I sat through another "tirade" about my smoking, not exercising enough, blah, blah, blah!
And, not Once did anyone want me to strip Naked!

I don't like going. But I'm one of those people that want to go if I feel something is wrong or if the doctor would like to recheck something. I rather catch something early (if it's there) and nip it in the bud before it advances. Complete opposite of those who like to continually reschedule or delay appointments, or are too afraid to face reality.
Are you suggesting a specific Dr?
Or will any of them do?
It's never too early in the year,
to spread some goodwill cheer!
I think the last time I saw a general practitioner was back in 2008 when I was diagnosed with shingles. (Don't worry, it was a very mild case.) Otherwise I've been in great health. I self-medicate with alcohol to keep the stress down. Now I need to book a couple of massages in addition to that...
I found a really great dentist since I moved back to Biloxi and his whole office is super friendly. I LOVE going there - everyone knows me by name and is always so friendly when I show up. I'm going to miss them once I move to Washington - unless I can find the money to fly back down for my twice-a-year teeth cleaning!
When I owned my own business (which I still own), I was not insured at all. I took on a full-time job with medical benefits, which has been awesome. I believe it includes a checkup or two a year, which I should probably take advantage of.

Not usually thrilled with my assigned general practitioner, the free STD clinic however...
NOt really, but I don't want to take my health for granted so it's necessary.

At first, I didn't like going, but now that I go all the time, it's just an every day thing. I go once a month for blood work and pentamidine treatment and six to eight week for the doctor.
"Like" is perhaps too strong a word. I certainly have no problem going. I preferred my last doctor, a very friendly woman that I got along with excellently. She moved to Boston, though. My new doctor is pretty good, though, even though I can never remember or pronounce his last name.
