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 sports-related injuries. 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
Scheduling a checkup for yourself or a family member is a great way to keep everyone healthy. During a wellness visit, we will perform a complete physical exam and provide any immunizations that are due. For children, the physical exam will measure growth and development and test hearing and vision. For adults, we often prescribe routine blood work on a yearly basis.
Well woman exam and pap smears
We provide well woman exams to perform routine checkups for women's reproductive health. 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 gynecologic cancer.
