Patient : I'm 68 and on US Medicare. I feel fine and have not been to see the Doctor in 18 months. If I am feeling fine, do I really need a check-up to satisfy the Medicare people?
I just passed a VERY easy D.O.T physical for truck driving.
Am 30 lbs. overweight and blood pressure runs 135 over 82 mostly.
The only meds I take is Crestor for cholesterol.
