Acton Medical strongly believes in prevention and early detection. We recommend annual physicals for ages 2 years and older. Infants and toddlers are seen every several months as recommended by your pediatrician. A physical exam performed within one year is accepted by most colleges, schools, camps and foreign travel situations. Children with specific needs may require individualized care beyond a physical exam.
A copy of your child’s immunization record will be available on FollowMyHealth. This record satisfies the requirement for most colleges, schools, activities, sports and camps. Immunizations given at a physical exam may vary depending on current recommendations. Your child’s pediatrician is happy to discuss the recommended immunizations and answer any questions.
In an effort to improve the quality of care, we have recently changed our informal process of throat culture visits to a more structured nurse visit. The nurse visit will include a clinical evaluation and assessment to determine the appropriate level of treatment needed. We have appointment times available at all locations for your convenience.
