Albany- This week is National Take a Loved One to the Doctor week. Health professionals around the country are urging people to schedule appointments for a check up with their doctors.

"There's so many people that do not go to the doctor because they are afraid and it's an excellent way to show love and caring to a loved one by taking them to the doctor because there are so many things that can be picked up," says Brenda Williams, director of Albany State University Health Services.

Health professionals say medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, and even cancer can be picked up during a visit to a doctor.
