    Nope. we both had family doctors long before we met each other. If one or the other retires, I can see us switching. Although, I love my doctor so much I hope she never ever retires. Ever.

    We have the same doctor, but we do separate appointments, it seems too much like mommy-ing to me to go to his doctor appointments.

    We had different doctors when we met, and just never had reason to change.

    We got to the same practice, but have different primary care doctors (his is a male, mine is a female).  I see no reason for me to attend my husband’s doctors appointments or for him to attend mine.

    I switched to his doctor because I went on his insurance after we got married and he really liked his doctor. Saved me from having to search out another good one!

    Yes we do. When we got engaged, I moved in with him, and changed provinces because of the move (we live on the border of two provinces). That allowed me to change doctors quite easily, and his family doctor took me right away. She’s great, and I never really liked my old doctor so it turned out great.

    I think it’s easier to have the same doctor.  We have the same dentist and eye dr and since I’m the one who sometimes has to make appointments for him, it’s good that we go to the same place so they aren’t like who’s this crazy woman calling about this guy?

    That being said, we don’t have a general doctor right now.  I mostly go to the GYN.

    We don’t have a general doctor.  We just see our own specialists.

    Neither one of us currently has a primary care physician, (we just go to specialists when we need to).  But whem/if we actually get one I think we’ll just go to the same one to simplify things.

    We don’t have the same doctors. Darling Husband has dentists/doctors/specialists he’s been going to for years. Plus it was cheaper for us to be on individual medical plans through our jobs, so we haven’t had any push to change, I’m hoping to change my primary care and dentist to DH’s in the next year.

    The military doesn’t even let us see doctors in the same clinic!

    Yeah, we do but that’s only because we moved and I found a doctor’s office that is really close to where we live.  He was the only doctor that was available to see new patients.   The Darling Husband likes this doc.  I don’t.  I would prefer a women doctor, too.

    I would like to be seen by another doc the next time I have to go.

    I do think it is easier to go to the same practice, though.  So I can make a payment and appointments for both of us. I’m not sure about the same doctor, though.  I am planning on having the Darling Husband go to my same dentist because I like them.

    We go to the same practice but we see different people. Actually Darling Husband sees a specific doctor and I see whoever is available. We do go to the same dentist though.
