kids Medical Physical before back to school
Believe it or not – it’s almost time to go back to school! Summer goes by way too fast, for kids and adults alike, it seems. Along with all of the stress and excitement that comes with the beginning of the school year, tons of things get added to your “to do” list. Going back to school can mean everything from getting new school supplies, to enrolling in special programs, to making appointments for physicals and getting vaccines before heading back to the classroom.
Physicals never have been and never will be popular for a student of any age. But, whether a physical is mandatory or not for your child, a routine physical before school starts is always a good idea. Besides checking for abnormalities or problems, pediatricians check vision, height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, etc. In addition, your child’s current medications and medical history will be taken in account. As far as immunizations go, your doctor will access your child for any current immunizations needed and administer all necessary vaccines.
Choosing a pediatrician that you and your child can count on is a great feeling. Visiting that same pediatrician later in the year or during his or her next physical often strengthens the bond for all parties involved. At Pediatric Clinic of Mesquite, with locations in Mesquite, Sunnyvale, Garland Texas, the physicians, pediatric nurses, medical assistants, land friendly staff are all there to help your child get the best medical care possible. It’s always great to have a strong, dedicated team on your side!
