Cross That Physical Off Your To-Do List

We’re here to take care of last-minute sports, camp and school physicals. PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers walk-in sports physical, camp physical, and school physical services for your convenience, or you can check-in online and find a time to be seen that works with your busy schedule.

At the start of each season, most schools, organizations and sports teams require a physical before children can participate or attend. Typically there are two parts to the sports, camp and school physical; a review of the patient’s medical history and the physical exam. This physical exam, conducted by our professional, experienced providers, helps determine whether it is safe for your child to participate in activities.

Q: Is a physical at PhysicianOne Urgent Care the same as the annual physical my child sees their primary care provider for?

A: No; a sports physical, camp physical, or school physical (administrative physicals) is not a replacement for the comprehensive annual preventative examination that is performed by your Primary Care Provider, which includes a comprehensive history and physical exam findings; age-appropriate counseling, screening labs, and tests; orders for vaccines appropriate for age; and risk factors. We recommend all patients see their primary care provider for an annual physical.

Q: What can we expect during the physical at PhysicianOne Urgent Care?

A: Typically there are two parts to the sports physical, camp physical, or school physical; a review of the patient’s medical history and the physical exam. This physical exam, conducted by our professional, experienced staff, helps determine whether it is safe for your child to participate in a particular activity as determined by the organization, camp or school requesting the physical exam. To make sure your child is okay to participate, our providers will assess the following during your visit:

  • Height and weight
  • Vitals readings
  • Medical history questionnaire
  • Family medical history
  • Physical exam

Q: What documentation should I bring to my child’s physical?

A. Please bring the form from the sports team, camp, or school that needs to be filled out by the provider; a copy of your child’s most recent immunization record; any recent physical exam documents; your driver’s license, and payment.

Q: What is the cost of a sports, camp, or school physical?

A: The cost of a youth physical is $80.

Q: Why isn’t a sports, camp or school physical covered by insurance?

A: Most insurances cover one complete physical per year. A physical for sports, camp, or school (administrative physical) is not the same as an annual physical. When you visit your primary care provider or pediatrician for your annual physical, it should be processed through your insurance.

Administrative physicals at PhysicianOne Urgent Care are not processed through insurance. Payment is due at the time of physical.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Patient
Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Patient
Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Patient
Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
