Mayo Clinic: Skin problems, joint disorders top list of reasons people visit doctors
Date:1/16/2013

ROCHESTER, Minn. -- A new Mayo Clinic Proceedings study shows that people most often visit their health care providers because of skin issues, joint disorders and back pain. Findings may help researchers focus efforts to determine better ways to prevent and treat these conditions in large groups of people.
