Today’s Resolution: Ask “What’s Up, Doc?”

When we’re children, check-ups at the doctor are essentially beyond our control. We are weighed and measured, given our shots, and asked to turn and cough (some of us).  As adults, especially when we feel well, we overlook these check-ups with the doctor.

Make an effort to visit with your medical practitioner.  Ask about normal blood pressure ranges for your age. See if you can get blood work done to check cholesterol levels. Inquire about any unusual skin spots; melanoma occurs much too frequently. Don’t be afraid to ask, What’s Up, Doc?”
