Physicals for Kids

Back-to-School and Sports Physicals to Keep Your Family Healthy

Now more than ever your child’s health is a priority, and an annual back-to-school or sports physical is essential for your child’s health care.

You can keep well-child, vaccination and developmental schedules knowing we have taken extra precautions to keep you, your family and the community safer. We have implemented steps such as skipping the waiting room, requiring face masks at our facilities for those ages 2 and older, and restricting visits to the child and one parent or guardian.

A back-to-school or sports physical will vary based on your child’s age and typically includes:

  • Review of the child’s medical history
  • Routine physical examination
  • Immunizations as needed
  • Completion of forms needed for sports or school participation
