Question DetailsAsked on 1/8/2013

General practice Dr. in OPKS that is willing to walk me through baby steps. Havent been to a Dr since I was 10, am now 34. Have insurance.

It's not that I am afraid of the Dr.'s office, I just never had bad health, then as an adult even when I had insurance I didn't care. I am getting to an age where I think I should at least have routine check ups. I want a Dr. that will be a straight shooter, but understand that after this long of never feeling the need for one, I am not all that hip to the idea. I would like a Dr. that would talk to me before jumping in to his/her Doctorisms, i.e. ask me why I am there and what I want or need or hope for before having me shuck down to a gown and start probing. Suggestions for a Dr. with great bedside manner, and superior knowledge. Help if you know one! Thanks.

I agree....what you are seeking from a physician should be common practice, but isn't. Good for you that you demand that type of respect for your money.
On the othert hand; OMG!!! Find this doctor fast!! Cervical cancer, HTN, diabetes are no jokes....even a healthy young person should see a doctor once a year, esp. for a PAP in a young woman.
