Medical consultation

According to a medical dictionary, medical consultation is a procedure whereby, on request by one physician, another physician reviews a patient’s medical history, examines the patient, and makes recommendations as to care and treatment.

So, usually we go to the doctor’s by several reasons:

a) other doctor said you need additional examination,

b) you need a sick leave,

c) unpleasant symptoms are screaming about the disease.

Though, especially nowadays, one should be really careful with health. You should visit several doctors regularly, even if you are not in pain. What for? Not to be in pain in future!
