Beat the Back-to-School Rush: Schedule School Physical Before It's Too Late!

I know our kids don’t want to think about heading back to school yet, but it’s a good idea to schedule their physicals early. By the time August rolls around, pediatricians' offices are packed and it can be difficult to get an appointment. If your child needs a physical for a school-related activity or just in general, it’s best to make the appointment before the rush to avoid unneeded stress for all of you. 

And while you're at it, mom, schedule your own health physical, too. We can't take care of our little people if we don't take care of ourselves first.
