Beyond the GP there is a whole host of doctors that have accumulated over time with my getting older. I see them for check-ups and evaluations and, of course, more medicines. I should not count the dentist among these doctors since I have seen one since childhood. But there are plenty of others that I see regularly over the course of a year and a few I haven't seen for awhile. The litany is long: gastroenterologist, gynecologist, neurologist, cardiologist, urologist, otolaryngologist who takes care of otorhinolaryngologic problems, ophthalmologist, orthopedist, hand specialist (specialties within specialists), allergist, dermatologist, podiatrist. There must be a song in there. Of course, each one has a new medicine and/or a new treatment that is guaranteed to take up more of my time and money.
