Now is a great time to schedule your child’s back to school annual physical

Updated: Aug 24, 2021


Your son or daughter should have a comprehensive physical exam every year. With the new school year on the horizon, now is a really good time to schedule that annual visit with your child’s primary care physician. They can make sure that vaccinations are up to date, check for any age-related health concerns and have whatever might be needed for a sports physical document your child’s school may require. Keep in mind that a sports physical does not replace a much more comprehensive physical exam.


Here are some links about the importance of scheduling an annual physical exam for your child:
