Are There ANY Anti-Aging Doctors Out There?

/ Friday, April 13, 2007 /
I am calling my (a) doctor today to schedule my first check-up in who knows how long. I've been putting this off for a few months now... ever since my string of visits to the dentist back in January and February. Now it's time to get the rest of me checked out.

I came across this article 'Age management' is a controversial new medical focus linked from a CR Diary's recent post on the new and strangely controversial medical focus of 'Age Management' or 'Preventative Medicine'. 

Being interested in longevity I read on and clicked through to another linked article: The secret of living to 100 and found the website: Living To 100.

According to their calculator I am on pace to hit 81 and I can raise the bar close to 90 by doing some basic things. One of which is getting my check ups regularly. My life expectancy appears is growing as we speak. :)

Anyway, I think more doctors should get onto the bandwagon of Preventative Medicine and more people should think of doctors in this light too. A doctor shouldn't be there to just treat problems but to help prevent problems from ever cropping up. To quote the movie Patch Adams:

We need to start treating the patient as well as the disease.
