Not important: Rather keeping a healthy life-style is, visiting the doctor regularly for routine health maintenance or if having a chronic condition that needs to be attended-to regularly makes sense only if you follow doctor's advice. Remember: good night time sleep, fresh air and exercise, and lots of fruits and vegetables are the pillars of healthy life-style, hence good immune system, wish you wellness
