Annual Visits

Through adolescence, your child will be changing constantly. Even though children may not need to receive regular immunizations, it is important to come in for an annual visit so that we can evaluate how they are doing. During these visits, we will conduct vision and hearing screening, speak with you and your child about any questions or concerns you may have, and counsel you appropriately. In addition, we will conduct a higher level of developmental assessments and counseling concerning the challenges facing adolescents today. We will be your right hand in ensuring that your child is staying on track physically and mentally and will provide you with the tools you need to keep up with your adolescent’s changing needs.

Sports/ Camp Physicals

We are frequently asked to provide medical evaluations and sign forms required by school districts, organizations, or clubs to clear a child for participation in certain physical activities. We are happy to complete these medical clearance forms during your child’s annual visit. If your child has had an annual exam within the last year and needs a sports physical at a later point in time, we may need to update her/his medical history and provide a limited exam prior to providing medical clearance. We charge $20 for this service, payable at the time of your visit. Please note that many insurance companies do not cover this service.
