People who have doctors live longer, and they live better. If you don't have a doctor, it's like going into dock with a big ship without a captain on board. You end up smacking into the wall of the dock, and you cause more problems that you can't fix down the road.

What should I keep in mind while looking for a doctor?
There are state and federal programs designed to help you find a doctor, but the key is to choose the right physician. During your first visit, there are key questions to consider. When you go to their office, do the other patients … look like you? Are the doctors board certified? Do they get along with the staff? If you get along with them, that person becomes your health coach. Because, remember, the word doctor means teacher, so it's a two-way street. If you come up with the right person, you're on the right path.
