Primary Care Physician

I was recently assigned to a new primary care physician.

After two visits and some pretty exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing “fairly well” for my age.

A little concerned about that comment, I couldn’t resist asking him, “Do you think I will live to be 80?”

He asked,”Well, do you smoke tobacco or drink beer or wine?”

“Oh no”, I replied. “I’ve never done either””

Then he asked, “Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?”

I said “No, I’ve heard that eating all that red meat is very unhealthy!”

“Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like when you are playing golf, sailing, ballooning or rock climbing?”

“No, I don’t”, I said.

He said, “Do you gamble, drive fast cars, sexually fool around or do any other crazy things?”

“No Doctor”, I said. “I’ve never done anything crazy like that”.

He looked at me with a puzzled expression and said, “Then why do you care if you live to be 80?”

I guess if you think about it, he’s got a valid point there.
