    Patients who are unaware of family history of illnesses which is a problem as genetics plays a big role in our health and well being be it physically or mentally. Additionally many patients are not regularly seeing their primary care doctors for yearly visits. Others who do, are often non compliant with their medications. I had a patient a few months ago who was diabetic and hypertensive but was not taking her medication for either. She came to me thinking she needed a change in her glasses prescription as her vision had been blurry a few weeks. On examination her optic nerve heads were swollen in both eyes and her blood pressure was 180/100. I advised her to see her MD immediately.
