School and sports physicals
Most schools and sports leagues require children to receive a physical exam before participation. We offer specific medical exams to screen for potential health problems and prevent injuries. It is our goal to keep your child safe before each sports season. During a sports physical, our doctor or physician assistant will:
- Check your child's blood pressure
- Document your child's height and weight
- Test your child's eyesight
- Check your child's flexibility, strength and overall fitness
- Review your child's medical history
Bringing in your child to a primary care physicians for regular check-ups can help keep your child healthy. During a well-child visit, we will perform a complete physical exam and give your child any immunizations that are due. The physical exam will measure your child's growth and development and test their hearing and vision. Well-child check-ups allow us to talk to parents about improving care as your child develops, establishing healthy habits and preventing health problems.
Well-woman exam / pap smear
We provide well-woman exams to perform routine check-ups for women's reproductive systems. We recommend women come in once a year for this physical examination, which includes a pap smear test, breast examination and pelvic examination. A pap smear test is performed as part of the pelvic exam to check for cervical cells changes that could develop into cancer.
Our family practice provides important immunizations to protect your family from potentially harmful diseases. Vaccines work with your body's natural defense systems to reduce the risk of infection and develop immunity to diseases. Our healthcare providers will help you determine the appropriate vaccination schedule for you or your loved one based on age and medical history. Here are a few of the immunizations we offer:
- Influenza vaccine (flu shot)
- Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis)
- HPV (human papillomavirus)
- Hepatitis A & B vaccines
- Polio vaccine
- Chickenpox vaccine
- MMR (measles, mumps and rubella)
