Do you go to the doctor with your husband?

My husband has been sick for a few weeks, so on Friday, he decided he would go to the doctor to get some stronger medicine and finally get rid of this cold that he had. Anyways, he asked me to go with him, so I did. When he got called back he said that he wanted me to go back with him but when we got back there the doctor kept giving me this strange look, like why are you here, type look. So, I was wondering if you go to the doctor with your husband and if you go into the back with him?

  • Sure, hubby and I usually go to each other's appointments. Our family doc sees it as very normal, and usually has some advice for how the spouse can help.

  • I've only ever gone to the Dentist with him, but that was only because he was getting scheduled for surgery. But no, I have never gone to the Dr with him and if I did for some reason I wouldn't go back there with him.

  • the only time my husband has been to the doctor in the 7 years we have been together was when he broke his arm traveling with work.

  • I have not ever been to the doctor with him. When he gets home, I dispense his medication to him though.

  • I go when it's a ortho/nerve issue b/c that's my area... but if he's sick he goes by himself. and why not... he went to my appointments sometimes when we were having babies! ;o)

  • I always go back with my husband. He wants me there, so I go. If the doctor is bothered by your being there, maybe you should change doctors.
