I work in ops, I have a chronic condition that's needs treatment based on screening that I done outside. Not sure if it is wise to seek treatment at my ops, or even ops from my cluster given that I am working there.

Is it common for doctors to seek treatment from their own department they working in?
If it is an ops condition should be okie lah.

Everybody will have some eczema or Htn or dm or hld
Not like cancer or tadalafil resistant erectile dysfunction or something confidential.

Yes important.

Medical exams is very much about "group think'
Do what everyone else does.
Dont be different. Be like same as everyone.
Dont stand out.
Unless you aiming to be top candidate.

In real life though if you want to succeed have to stand out.
Its a restrictive profession that makes smart people turn into dumb followers
