Fast forward a few weeks and their office calls to tell me that my oldest needs to come in for his 11 year physical. I had never heard of such a thing, and the person on the phone was just a message service with no insight into such things. I wanted to know what was driving this physical. My kids aren’t in government schools so I couldn’t imagine any reason that pre-6th grade physical would be required. My wife called their office a time or two on my behalf and got no answer that would satisfy me.
