Question: Do I need an appointment?
Answer: If your child needs a form for school filled out, and they have not had a physical by the doctor in the last twelve months, an appointment must be scheduled in order to have the form completed. If your child is ill and you are not sure if he/she needs to come in, please call our office. A nurse will be happy to talk to you and schedule an appointment if needed.
