The Iowa Clinic Pediatrics and Family Medicine Departments are ready to get your child’s wellness in check before the school year starts.
Back-to-School Physicals / Annual Wellness Exam
An annual exam is an opportunity to track your child’s growth and development both physically and mentally. It’s very important to get a check-up each year so you can establish a medical history for your child and track important developmental milestones. This exam is also an opportunity for you and your child to develop a relationship with a primary care physician or pediatrician. The development of this relationship will help you and your child feel comfortable sharing any physical or emotional concerns so your provider is able to address them early on.
Sports physicals are important to ensure your child is able to safely participate in his/her growing list of activities. These exams are an opportunity for your primary care physician or pediatrician to identify any underlying injuries your child may have or even help to prevent any possible injuries in the future. During this physical exam, your provider can share important information about staying safe so your child can stay in the game.
