Women more likely than men to see doctor regularly

Women are three times more likely to see a doctor on a regular basis compared to men, according to a national survey.

Doctors at Loyola University Health Systems believe it is a question of priorities.

They say men are not willing to make lifestyle changes to improve their health, so they feel it is a waste of time to listen to a doctor. This thought process does not make sense, considering the longer a person puts off seeing a doctor... The more likely he'll wind up having to see a doctor on a regular basis.
