It’s important to see your doctor every year, especially as you get older, if you are overweight or sedentary, or if you have high-risk habits such as tobacco or excessive alcohol use. Building a relationship of trust with your doctor over time can help you adopt healthier habits, improve your heart numbers, and catch conditions early, when they are most treatable.
