In lieu of a one day sports physical clinic event, we are now offering sports physicals year round as part of our regular services. This is much more convenient for your schedule, and allows the exam to happen closer to the sport season your child is participating in.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS! A “High School Sports Physical” is an abbreviated exam that checks only the requirements on the form. It is not a comprehensive wellness exam and may not pick up major issues affecting your child. An option you might consider is making an appointment for a “Wellness Exam”. One Wellness Exam per year is covered by all insurances* and is an extensive in-depth physical which includes updating immunizations, discussing social health risks, addressing concerns your child might have, and any health issues that may come up in the exam. This will more than meet the requirements of the sports physical and reassure you all of your child’s health is being addressed, not just the items on the sports physical checklist.
Whichever you choose … High School Sports Physical, or an annual Wellness Exam … please be sure to specify your wishes when you make the appointment. To help accommodate the need, we have reserved appointment times on various afternoons in July and August so these physicals can be done prior to the start of camps and practice in August.
*All commercial and government insurances except Alaska Retirees (Aetna).
