If you do not need a physical for school or sport, have no concerns about your child's health and they do not need any vaccines at the time, do you take them annually for a physical?
We do not have an insurance to pay for physicals and pay cash - so the visit would cost around $150-$200 per child. We also do not have a family doctor or a pediatrician in TN ... I wonder if we have no need for a medical visit, we should just skip it and go visit our old pedi in FL when we get around to it. We will be in FL some time over the summer (probably July/August) and they are due for a physical at the end of May.
We have no "external" need for a physical (school forms, etc.)
