RRP: $24.99


A LIGHT-HEARTED look into why it is that a man can never go to see a doctor unless a woman tells him to.

Troy Harvey reviews the reasons for this affliction.

He playfully suggests that the male phobia for visiting doctors has more to do with laziness than machismo.

Men will rarely go to the same doctor twice and will always be looking for a simple and quick fix.

He gives his male's stance on various medical professions.

When visiting an optometrist don't mistake an eye test for a romantic gesture.

Hypnotherapists don't have dangling watches or a beautiful assistant and a physiotherapist is the coolest person a man can ever pretend to visit.

His testimonies are highly entertaining and tragically true.
