This article contains the results of a study made with the purpose of getting close to the understanding of subjective aspects that underlaythe frequent demand of medical appointments, by patients. The research design was qualitative, the methodology was case studies and the information recollection technique was the in depth semi-structured interview. Nine samples were taken from frequent medical consultants of a health institution in Medellin. The results suggest that there is a search for relief and control in the medical appointment made by the frequent consultants, motivated by the suffering they manifest and have. Aspects like the tie with the doctor, patient demand and the social representations constituted are decisive for the perception of control and relief of this suffering and the beginning and maintenance of the frequent medical consultant.
