Medical check-up

How often do you go to your doctor for general check-up? Do you go regularly or only when you feel something is not right with your body? Do you have a family doctor?

I’m curious because I know for most professionals, there is a health card provided by the companies they work for. But for those of us who do freelance work, we rely on our income to fund our trips to the doctor’s clinic. And it’s pricey! A regular consultation with a medical doctor averages about 400 to 600 pesos in professional fees. That’s already a minimum salary for the day of an average Filipino worker. I doubt you will shell out that much when you aren’t feeling anything bad. I won’t.

So how do you go about taking care of your healthy/body? Do tell.
