One of the fantastic tips I got from a friend recently was to take some time at the beginning of the year to schedule all of your families medical appointments. It is so easy to let a year slip by with out these essential appointments and if you take the time to schedule them properly you will have the time to prepare for them and to get the most out of them. Take an hour to schedule your regular Dentist, Pediatrician, Vet and Doctor appointments now! Here are a few tips to help you get the best appointments:

-Call from a quiet place with few distractions and call at a convenient time. Most offices get the most calls in the 30 minutes after they open. Unless it is an emergency, wait until an hour after they open to make your call. Never call at lunch time or in the hour before they close. You will not get the best attention on the other end of the line!
-Select a few ideal times and dates before you make the call and begin by asking if those appointments are available
-Collect your personal information before you call. You may be asked for Social Security numbers and Health Insurance information.
