DEAR DR. ROACH: Why has the physical exam all but disappeared from a doctor's visit? When I go to a doctor, I am lucky to have my lungs and heart listened to with a stethoscope. I cannot remember when a physician has felt my abdomen, listened to my chest, felt my lymph nodes, felt for pulses in my arms and legs, looked in my ears, looked in my eyes, etc. I have MS and also a strong family history of vascular disease. I visit the doctor every six months. Rarely does he or she touch me. As long as my labs are OK, I am sent on my way.
