I said "men" and not "guys" 'cause what I'm looking for and can't find on these boards are males' experiences with physicals, examinations, and doctor's visits.
Do you get exams regularly? What does the doctor/practitioner usually do/examine? How do you feel about having physicals? Do you feel they are necessary, or benefit you? Does the gender of your doctor matter to you when getting a physical?
These are just a few questions that you might find helpful in responding.
Let me clarify what I'm looking for, actually. I'm clear on the facts; what I'm really looking for from our male users is some experiences regarding having physicals done. What was it like, how do you feel about having them, is it something you do every year or do you put it off or have you never had it done? That sort of thing, in full sentences.
a little off topic, a little on, is there a section on how to find health care? i field a lot of calls for clinic referrals. seems a lot of people have no idea where to go, and if they find my hotline at all, that's a step in the right direction, but most folks don't even get that far.
