Depends: Depends on your individual health goals. But in general, for preventive screening, every two years is probably sufficient if you have no medical conditions. This is primarily driven by the USPSTF recommendation that you have a mammogram every 2 years between the ages of 50 and 75. Other things to have checked would be blood pressure, cervical cancer screening (every 3-5 years) and Colon cancer. ...Read more

Doesn't matter: The gender of the physician and patient do not have to be matched to have a quality annual exam. If pub feel more comfortable with one over another, that's ok, and you can choose your doctor accordingly. Best to keep the same doctor over the years and develop a good relationship. Hope this helps! ...Read more

It is time: You have a medical problem that requires an examination. You need this examination to get better. You are 46 years old. It is time to be an adult and have your exam. If you think for one moment that the doctor, male or female, will have any inappropriate thoughts about your skin then you are mistaken. We see skin every single day of our lives. It is skin and it must be examined. Go to the doctor! ...Read more

Cheapest: Take the cheapest multivitamin you can find in the corner pharmacy. There's no reason to think the supplement will improve your health, and there's not a spit's worth of difference among them. ...Read more
