Please take a look at the context: to visit the doctor’s annually means you see the doctor once a year.[YSaerTTEW443543]

If I could add a comment - the apostrophe is an indication that this is the surgery of the doctor as in the butcher’s meaning the shop of the butcher.

I see now, so it works just as in: in “my mother’s house” or at my mom’s, right?

Absolutely. Incidentally a comment about the mantra that you use at the end of your messages should read:

I should have been born in the USA. I’ve got this thing about America.

Corrected… :lol:

Yes you are.[YSaerTTEW443543]

Hi,

The comparison isn’t deliberate, is it? Still, it sounds as if you might have had a bad experience at the doctor’s.

You don’t have to answer this, Alan, as it’s only a rhetorical question :slight_smile: .
