When it comes time to get your child ready for the school year, Minit Medical is here to help make the transition from summer to fall as easy as possible. Having an annual physical examination is an excellent way to ensure your child receives the individualized care and attention they deserve. It is an opportunity for a physician to take time to address any concerns you may have about your child’s health and well-being.
At Minit Medical, your child’s health and safety are our top priority, and we strive to provide the highest quality care available without the wait typically associated with a doctor’s office visit. We offer both appointments and walk-in hours 7 days a week, so no matter what your schedule entails, we can see your child when it works best for you.
Annual physical examinations are especially important for student athletes because they help ensure your child is healthy enough to participate in team sports. Taking the time to see a doctor every year can help prevent more serious medical issues from occurring. Our professional staff has the knowledge and experience necessary to thoroughly evaluate your child and provide you with the information you need to keep them as healthy as possible.
A physical exam is a fairly simple and non-invasive process. We will take a full medical history of your child, and then record their height, weight, and blood pressure. The exam will also entail a vision assessment, and an evaluation of your child’s heart, lungs, abdomen, ears, nose, and throat. We will also take a close look at their posture and joint health to make sure there are no serious issues such as scoliosis that would require more intensive treatment. If your child’s school requires any authorization forms or paperwork, Minit Medical can provide documentation of your child’s visit.
If any issues are discovered during the course of the physical exam, our medical staff may make recommendations for a follow-up appointment. It is important to make sure that any issues that are raised during the exam are addressed more fully in order to keep your child as healthy as possible.
In addition to providing physical exams, Minit Medical also offers a full range of vaccination and immunization services to help you keep your child healthy all year long. If you are interested in taking advantage of our vaccine services, please call us to set up an appointment so we can ensure your child receives the immunizations they need in a timely manner.
When you come to Minit Medical for your child’s school and sports physicals, we want you to know that they will be given the care and attention they deserve. We know that there is nothing more important to you than your child’s health and safety, and we are just as dedicated to their well-being as you are. The next time your child requires a physical exam for school or sports, call for an appointment, or simply walk in to one of our 2 convenient locations.
