If your current children do not go to a doctor on a regular basis- like, I would have no one to put down for their "doctor" they have never been sick and do not get vaccinations. My 10 year old has been once for a check up she needed for an activity when she was 5, once for an outer ear infection, once for an embedded earring back (nasty) and once for stepping on a nail. My youngest, 8, um... I think the last time was when she was a year old. They are never "sick".
We go to a chiropractor once in a while- but that is it.
So, what does one put down? Maybe I am too out of the box thinker type for an adoption?

Every time i've undergone a foster or adoptive homestudy, all people in the home must have a current (within one year) physical (the agency provided the form) signed by the doctor. They will want to know who your doc is and also where you plan on taking the foster or adoptive child. I would put down whatever doctor you've taken them to when they have gone in the situations you've listed.
What type of adoption are you considering? if you are planning to foster, you need to take them to an actual doctor within X number of days of placement (usually 30) for a physical. As well as dentals if they are a certain age. They will need to be kept up to date on a typical vax schedule. When i was placed with a sib group of three this summer for a couple of months we probably went to the doctor (urgent care as well as their regular doctor) half a dozen times or more in that time period. My last foster daughter i didnt have to take her at all as she was already UTD on shots, had a current physical and didnt get sick. (Oh wait thats not true, i did take her to urgent care for ringworm and once again for a skin rash.)
