I'm a nurse in a doctor's office and we have our hypertensive patients come every 3 months if they are not controlled yet and every 6 months if well controlled on medication. If your blood pressures are not controlled yet you should be checking them at home and bring a list to the doctor. If you are controlled then check them at least 2-3 times a week. If you notice any changes in your blood pressure, have chest pain, shortness of breath, headaches or blurry vision you need to go to the ER or call your doctor.
