In general, for both men and women, if you are basically in good health and are younger than 50, it is recommended that you see your PCP every three years for a checkup. After age 50, see your doctor once a year. Primary care doctors play a very important role in maintaining good health. Here's why you should visit yours soon.
For example, if, in addition to preventive services, your doctor evaluates and treats knee pain that began last week, the visit will be considered a regular visit.
