As the summer months approach, so does our busy physical exam season. If you are planning on your child having his/her well check-up exam over the summer, please call us soon so that you have a better selection of available dates and times. Be advised that the physical exam and State of Illinois Form are good for 1 year, so the check-up can be done anytime throughout the year, preferably around your child’s birthdate. We will print the State of Illinois form in our office but you will be responsible for bringing in any other paperwork such as athletic or medication authorization forms. Please remember to fill in as much of the information on such forms as possible prior to bringing them in or dropping them off, and allow 7-10 days for the forms to be completed.
Please note that some insurance companies require 12 months between well-child exams, while others allow one per calendar year. We ask that you check with your insurance if you are uncertain what your plan allows, as our office does not know what your particular policy states.
