Well its back to school time and that means getting your kids ready for the next school year. Im also sure as a parent you are thinking about the well being of your child over this next year and  ways to keep them healthy and active. One way to do this is to encourage physical activity and playing school sports or extra curricular sports activites. Please remember that schools need a Sports form filled out yearly so they can ensure that your child is healthy enough to participate. We can do this at their yearly physical or we can see them for a sports physical to get them playing right away.The difference in the two checkups is we have more time to discuss other health concerns or even old medical concerns at a Well Child Checkup. Please schedule either checkup today if your child needs one.
Its also time to start thinking about Immunizations for the year as well. Influenza season is coming and we will be looking to get everyone immunized over the next several months. Please consider this immunization and call us to discuss if your child is up to date on all of their immunizations. Recent changes to vaccines and new guidelines are making it very important for your Medical provider to closely review the immunization records to ensure that you and your child are fully protected from vaccine preventable diseases. Please let us know how we can help you.
