Back to School Physicals / Well-Child Checkup

A back to school physical or well-child checkup is an opportunity to track your child’s growth and development both physically and mentally. It’s essential to get a check-up each year so you can establish a medical history for your child and track critical developmental milestones. This exam is also an opportunity for you and your child to develop a relationship with a provider. The development of this relationship will help you and your child feel comfortable sharing any physical or emotional concerns, so your provider can address them early on.

Sports Physicals

Sports physicals ensure your child can 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 valuable information about staying safe so your child can stay in the game.
