In celebration of Children’s Health Month, Dr. Thomas Polucki wants to make sure that your children are as healthy as possible.  Do any of your children have a health problem that concerns you?  Do any of your children have allergies, need to lose weight or have problems with digestion or pain?  If the answer to one or more of these questions is “yes”, Dr. Polucki would like a chance to help.  Call his office at 661-753-9340 to schedule a free Back-to-School Check Up for your children.  Every child will receive an evaluation – a test of their diet – to see if it could be the cause of allergies or learning difficulties.  They will be screened for environmental toxins that could be stressing their immune system.  Also, they will be checked for structural and functional imbalances that can affect their performance.  Space is limited for this event.  Click here to read more about Dr. Thomas Polucki.
