I don't go to doctors unless I really, really have to. However the dentist is a biggie for me, I just cant sit in that chair without feeling dread. I've never had a bad experience, im not afraid of needles or anything, I just feel trapped and don't want to panic  :sick0002:

I think I fear new doctors the most. If I haven't been before I am worried they won't take me seriously, won't be able to help me or will give me bad advice.

And the gyno is never fun, but fortunately I like mine.

I fear all doctors oddly I worked in health care and never feared doctors until I lost my job and my marbles..

I fear Oncologist the most..

Don't like Dentist either looking in my mouth and touching my face...

Chiropractors - don't like them afraid of them breaking my back or neck.

Gyno's and Mammograms - Yuck!

I really don't like finding out medical problems . Mentally or Physically.

I'd have to say all of the above. I wouldn't fear the dentist if it didn't require me getting xrays. I fear xrays of any kind!

Any doctor that uses general anesthesia.  Other than that, I'm ok.  I do love going to my chiropractor, though.

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack

Dentist, neurologist, and cardiologist. I'm fine with my family doctor or any other type of doctor.

I have been told that I am one of the best dentiphobe patients that my dentist has ever seen.
I had dental work done when I was a child and I had to wear a cement brace when I was 5.
I have had two crowns and I have severe TMJ so just working on my mouth is painful.
I have fear until I see the urologist (as I had three kidney stone surgeries 3 yrs ago and it was the summer from H*#!.
I have to see the vascular surgeon too as I have had a DVT in my lifetime as well.
I know that my GP probably hates me because I am so anxiety ridden about the health issues.

Gyn. He's a really nice doctor but I'm terrified of the female cancers. I also dread my mammogram not just because it's a cancer test but it's like slamming a garage door on my boobs. I still go.

The rest of my doctors I'm not scared of, but I find pain annoying.

I would say just the dentists. Mainly because I had a traumatic experience with dentists when I was about 5 or 6. I remember running away from my dad as he was taking me to the dentist and then I hid behind someone's house haha  :P

General Practice. I know I don't have to worry about brain tumors at the dentist or cavities at the dermatologist. The general practice is a place where all my anxieties collide.
