Walk-In Sports Physicals for Families in Chestnut Hill, MA
Are you rushing to meet the registration deadline for your child’s upcoming athletic season? Don’t worry—when your child needs a sports physical and you don’t have time to wait for an appointment with their pediatrician, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care. We’re one of the leading immediate care providers serving the Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, community, and our local urgent care center offers sports physicals on a walk-in basis.
What Happens at a Sports Physical?
So, what is a sports physical, exactly? Unlike annual physicals—which also consider a child’s emotional, developmental, and social health—sports physicals are limited to determining whether a child is healthy enough to safely participate in a certain activity. In order to make this assessment, we’ll ask about your child’s medical and family histories and perform a physical examination.
To ensure that we can get everything accomplished in one visit, you’ll want to bring:
- The forms provided by your child’s sports team
- A copy of your child’s most recent immunization record
- Your driver’s license and insurance card (if applicable)
- $80 for payment (this is the flat fee we charge for school, sports, and camp physicals, which typically aren’t covered by insurance)
