They want to play this season. Make sure they are ready with a sports or camp physical!

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.

A: March 15 through June 15 we are offering sports, camp, and school physicals for $35! Take advantage of a $45 savings before the season starts, as the usual cost for 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.
