Physicals Performed Without an Appointment at Our Urgent Care Center in Waterbury, CT
Did you just find out that your child needs a physical examination completed for school, sports, or camp ASAP? These requests typically come at the last minute. If you’re wondering what would be the quickest way to get it done, you’ve come to the right place.
The experienced providers at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Waterbury, Connecticut, perform physicals 365 days per year, including weekends and holidays. At the start of a new school semester, sporting season, or summer vacation, many doctor’s offices are very busy performing physicals, but we always have time for you. Plus, we don’t require appointments, making it even easier for you to check this item off your to-do list – on your time.
What to Expect & How to Prepare
Based on the current standard of care, we’ll quickly and thoroughly evaluate your child’s health condition to confirm that he or she is healthy enough to safely participate in his or her chosen physical activities. To further expedite the process, you’ll want to have the following items with you when you bring your child to our office for a physical:
- The pre-participation physical exam form you received from your child’s school, sports, or camp program (for our provider to review, complete, and sign)
- Your child’s prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses (if applicable)
- Your child’s immunization record
You’ll also need to be prepared to discuss your child’s past and present illnesses, injuries, allergies, treatments, and medications, so you might want to review that information beforehand. Also, keep in mind that a school, sports, or camp physical is not a substitute for a more comprehensive annual wellness exam, so your child will still need that, too.
In addition to school, sports, and camp physicals, PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers a complete array of non-emergency healthcare services. Stop by our office in Waterbury, CT, today!
