My wife finally convinced me to get a physcial; I hadn't had one since I was in high school (about 15 years ago). Pee in a cup, blood pressure, stethoscope, turn and cough, quick grope for T-cancer, draw blood and we're done. Other than the lab work, I can't really figure out what was remotely worthwhile here. And it seems to me that the doctor just acts as a middleman for the lab work. I wonder how much my insurance company paid for this "you're healthy, go away" treatment. Now I'm just waiting to hear him recommend that I be on a statin, which I will immediately reject. I used to think rather highly of doctors. More and more I'm beginning to think of them as lawyers that went to school for 10 years instead of 7.
