Routine well-child visits can double as a sports physical

If you're the parent who is calling the doctor's office the day before practice starts, we have news for you — there's a better way!

Your routine well-child visit can be used to approve your child's participation in sports. As long as your visit is scheduled within six months prior to participation, your pediatrician can sign the needed paperwork without a second visit.

We recommend your child receive a yearly exam by your pediatrician to assess your child's growth and development, immunization schedule, nutrition, sexual activity and mental wellness.

Benefits of a well-child exam

Group physicals at the school do not give a full picture of the health of the patient. Although this may seem like a tempting solution, one issue with group physicals is some use a station method; there is not a single provider looking at the overall health of the child.
