Your annual physical is a costly ritual, not smart medicine - CNN.com

I wonder if there is benefit in "ritualizing" attention to one's health, nevertheless. #dox Although Dr. Rothberg supports eliminating the annual checkup stating, "The flip side of that [eliminating annual physical] is if you're not feeling well, don't keep it to yourself. Don't minimize it. Don't pretend it's not there." I suspect many may do exactly that--minimize their health symptoms and pretend it's not there. Perhaps, the annual physical needs to tweaked for highest value rather than done away with. What are your thoughts?
