Getting a camp physical and vaccinations up to date so Vince can start summer camp on Monday was complicated today. Two referrals to two pediatricians led to two phone calls which said, sorry, no appointments until August! Argh!
So we went to a minute clinic at a CVS and then they referred us to a walk-in clinic down the road. I love the minute clinic, service just like in Singapore. You walk in, no appointment necessary – staffed with folks who can treat ear infections and seasonal allergies – it’s great and (relatively) cheap. Then you can pick up your prescription 10 feet away. Genius.
It’s also a relief to be able to answer in quick succession –
any medical problems – no!
any medications – no!
any developmental delays – no!
any speech problems – no!
any physical limitations – no!
OK – kid you are ready for summer camp – let me sign all the forms….
because I have had many, many, many conversations with medical professionals are much more complicated.
