When you go in for your annual OB/GYN check up, does your Doctor ask you questions about your overall health? Does she take your blood pressure or ask if you have any other problems?

Since my GP is also my OB/GYN, yes, she does all of those things... that's why I like her!

Yep he sure does. He listens to my heart, checks weight, b/p and will run just about any blood test you want him to. I like my OB a lot. He asks if I've been hospitalized in the past year or had any major health issues.
