Good reference especially for guys (like me, John Hudson) who sometimes chickened out of going to the doctor.   I had not gone for 20+ years and was scared to death, but finally went a few years ago after I met my wife, Celeste.  I was expecting to have every possible thing wrong with me… so when the doctor said I was fine, it took a while to set in.  Now the doctors bug me and I go on an annual schedule.  But for all guys out there that put it off like I did…it may not be nearly as bad as you think.  This article suggests how often to see your General Practitioner, Dentist, and Optometrist.
