Americans are going to the doctor less often. From 2001 to 2010, working age adults went to see doctors, nurses and other medical providers an average of 3.9 times in 2010, compared to 4.8 times in 2001, according to Census Bureau figures. Those who answered the survey were much less likely to visit a dentist than a medical provider in the last year — 59 percent went to the dentist, while 73 percent saw a medical provider. Fifty-seven percent of the population did not take prescription medications in the previous year, while 35 percent take them on a regular basis.
