Don’t Forget Your Check-Up For The New Year

A new year usually means check-ups.  Annual check-ups on your car, your pets and yourself.  If you are part of the MissionFiT family of athletes, then you should know the importance of getting a physical every year.


It’s Still Early in the Year…I’ll Get My Check-Up Soon

Sometimes, procrastination is a good thing.  Sort of like waiting until that sleek pair of shoes goes on sale at your favorite retailer.  However, doctor appointments are not one of those things you should put off for another day.  How many times have you heard someone say “I’m glad I  got checked when I did.  The doctor determined we caught the cancer early.”?

But….I Don’t Get Sick.  Why Should I Get A Check-Up?

We at MissionFiT are grateful you are in such good health. However, there are times when the “Minute Clinic” at the local drug store won’t be able to help your condition.  If you fall in that category, then you need to seek the resources available to a well-rounded medical practice.  In addition, most insurance plans cover annual preventative visits.  So your office visit may not cost you anything.

But I Don’t Have A Regular Doctor

That’s why MissionFiT is here to assist you.  So look over the list of recommended local physicians for both family practice and pediatrics.  Visit the websites for more information on each practice.
