Has it been more than a year since your child has seen their primary care doctor?  Summer is a great time to catch up on needed immunizations and sports physicals - especially for those sports that start at the beginning of the school year.  Just a reminder - if you have a primary care provider, please try them first for a sports physical.  If you have questions or concerns, please call us at 415-469-4512.  There will be clinic staff present in the clinic during most of June and July.
