CVS Minute Clinic Review and Giveaway!

I was given the opportunity to head over to the CVS Minute Clinic for a
Summer Camp Physical for my son.
We had never been to a Minute Clinic before so the entire experience was new to me.
I love the sign in process. Quick touchscreen info and then you are done.
There was no wait for us so we were able to get right in.

A camp physical takes 15 minutes and goes through all the normal things.
Blood Pressure, temp, all of those good things.

Next, just a small questionnaire.
Now on this question is where OUR physical ended.

There is a section that asks if the patient has had a family member who passed due to cardiac issues UNDER the age of 50. Who normally says yes?
They certainly weren't expecting me to!
My mom passed at the age of 42 after having 2 heart attacks in less than 12 hours.
So with all precautionary measures in place,
the Minute Clinic could not go ahead with the physical.
Obviously my son's pediatrician knows this info and all 3 of my children are always checked and are up to date on all physicals and immunizations.
I completely understand the restriction imposed and the liability they cannot assume.
I will tell you that I had the most wonderful experience.
The Physician on hand (K. O'Neal) was courteous and explained all normal procedures as if we would have been able to go ahead with the  physical.

If we had gone in for an illness, this would not be a problem
(just a "clean bill of health" physical).

If you have a child who is attending Summer Camp and needs a physical, I have one up for grabs.. Through 9am 6/1/2012 !!!
