Summer Update 06/20/2019

Hello All,

The office is in full swing with the Summer Schedule! School Physicals, Sports Forms, Camp Physicals, School Medication Forms and Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Screenings! I hope everyone is having a fun and safe summer following the guidelines set out by the American Academy of Pediatrics! Two hours of exercise per day, less than two hours of screen time per day and one hour of brain exercise per day – don’t forget that brain! I am in the office full-time; that is, Monday through Friday from 8:00 – 5:00 with a few exceptions for my mental stability. Don’t worry, if I am ever out of the office, I have a wonderful replacement with whom I would trust my own children.

I am also active in our community through volunteerism, including weekly segments on ABC-7 Wednesday mornings at 9:15, along with my Board Position on an International Not-For Profit, The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation. As Treasurer of The Lee County Medical Society, I am also involved with all the wonderful service they provide to Southwest Florida. Other activities are too numerous to mention in this update, but suffice it to say, MacKoul Pediatrics Fort Myers is your Pediatric Source!

My staff and I are here to serve you 24/7. The office telephone number is always your ‘go-to!’ 239-415-1131

Annette M. St. Pierre-MacKoul, MD
