Heart Screening Program
Attention: All High School Students
Mercy Health is offering FREE heart screening to all area high school students. This program attempts to identify any pre-existing heart conditions that could potentially increase a student's risk of complications during athletic competition and/or vigorous physical activity. This program is for all students regardless of participation in sports or not. For more information, please visit Mercy Health.com/StudentHeart.
If you have a child in the 6-12 grade that plans to participate in a school sport, be aware the physical will need to be done on or after April 15th. Please keep this in mind when scheduling your teenagers yearly physical. Call early to schedule!
In the event that Shoreline Pediatrics, PLC should close due to inclement weather, please call our office at 231-777-2732 for further instructions or tune in on-line or on-air to WZZM or WWMT for closing information.

Beginning February 4, 2013 appointment reminders will be delivered to you by your preferred choice of communication (voice, text, e-mail). These appointment reminders are a courtesy to remind you of upcoming well exams, sports physicals, medication check-ups, and new patient appointments. In the past, you received a call one working day prior to the appointment, now you will receive a message 2-3 days prior giving you adequate time to call and reschedule if necessary. Please make sure we have your updated contact information and your preferred choice of communication. Thank you.
