Its 2010, it seems like all Jamaicans have a personal cellular phone, computer and other fun items that are priority. Personal health does not seem to have a high priority to many Jamaicans unless they are very sick. Most persons do not have a personal doctor and do not do regular visits to the doctor to ensure they are in the best of health. There are persons who are over age 25 and have not seen a doctor in over 10 years.
Ask your friends and family for the name of a good doctor. Of course, check to see if they take your insurance. Make an appointment for a physical or general doctor checkup. That's the best place to start; they may take a general history and do some basic tests. Be sure to mention any problems/issues you are having, it’s never too late to start taking care of your health, so try to make it important to have a good personal doctor. It can make a big difference in your life. Doctors know that people are nervous so don't worry. They will walk you through the process and let you know exactly what they are doing.
