I'd like to consult with a doctor concerning my depression.

Hello. I am your doctor today. Please take a seat and tell me what is bothering you the most.

自然な表現

Hello. I'm your doctor today. Please take a seat and tell me how I can help you.

1. Your sentence was already perfect in terms of grammar, but for a more natural sound, try to use contractions as much as possible.
2. Your sentence was already perfect! This is just another expression you can try using.
I noticed that I've become sadder each day. In a week, I feel depressed like four times. Should I be alarmed over this? What can I do to remove this?

Okay, please let me ask you a few more question before I give you medical advice. How severe do you think your depression is? What kind of situation do you feel depressed? Do you have any physical symptoms?

1. You're referring to more than one so use plural here.
I don't know how severe it is. I just have it a lot on a weekly basis. Actually, I don't know what situations cause this. I get depressed all of a sudden. Can you elaborate on what physical symptoms were you referring to?

Okay, I would like to know if you have any other medical problems, such as retching, dizziness, vomiting, weight loss, or whatever, as well as depression. Have you ever experienced events that made you feel sad or stressed? Has your lifestyle changed recently? And, please describe what you are thinking when you feel sad and depress, as long as you can.

Have you ever experienced events that made you feel sad or stressed? Has your lifestyle changed recently? And, please describe what you are thinking when you feel sad and depressed, as detailed as you can.

1. You should use the adjective form here and not the verb form. 'Depressed' can act as both a verb and adjective.
2. This is a better verb.
Nothing of those you mentioned. When I am depressed, I eat a lot. Sometimes, certain events make me sad. However, most of the time, I become sad for no reason at all. My lifestyle has been like this for more than ten years already. I want to commit suicide sometimes.

I see. It is sometimes too harsh to live with that emotion. Now, I would like you to do is have a blood test taken in another room, and then answer some questionnaires about your feeling and life-style which is helpful for us to understand your problem. After finishing these exmas, please come back to see me here.

1. There needs to be a noun or pronoun here to complete the sentence. 'What' works best with the sentence.
2. No need to hyphenate the word.
Okay. How long do you think the other exams will take? Do you think this is something serious already?

I cannot say for now that you are in serious situation, but actually I am sure you have some mental problems. To handle this, we need more information from you. Let's do those exams first before consulting again. I think because we don't have many patients today it won't take a long to finish the blood test, but it should take more than half an hour to complete the questionnaires.

1. 'Situation' is a singular, countable noun so you should use an article here.
  • disorder(不調)
  • lifestyle (生活習慣)
  • lifestyle-related diseases(生活習慣病)
  • diseases (病気)
  • depressed (落ち込んだ)
  • the feeling of hopelessness(絶望感)
  • address an issue(問題解決に取り組む)
  • mental issues associated with(〜に伴う精神問題)
  • the feeling of helplessness(無気力感)
  • What are you worrying about?(何か心配事はありますか?)
