Where to Get a Sports Physical Without an Appointment in White Lake, MI
If you’re the parent of a school-age child, there’s a good chance you’ve experienced that sinking feeling of finding a crumpled sports physical form at the bottom of your child’s backpack or mislaid in the backseat of the car. And the form is due the next day—there’s no time to book an appointment at your primary care doctor’s office. Yet your child wants to participate in the program. What do you do?

What to Expect When Your Child Gets a Sports Physical at Our Walk-In Clinic
If you received a specific form from your child’s school, camp, or youth sports program, you should bring that with you for one of our certified medical practitioners to fill out. You should also be ready to discuss your child’s medical history, including health conditions and any medications your child takes. A vision test is typically required for a sports physical, so be sure to bring your child’s glasses or contact lenses if applicable.
During your visit, your doctor or certified physician’s assistant will conduct a physical exam aimed at identifying any health conditions that may affect your child’s ability to participate in the youth program. At the end of your visit, you’ll receive a signed sports physical form that indicates whether it’s safe for your child to participate fully or with specified restrictions. In some cases, there may be a need for a follow-up exam.
We’ll be happy to tell you more about the sports physicals and other health care services we offer to children and adults throughout the White Lake area. Contact Springfield Urgent Care today for more information, or simply stop by our walk-in clinic when it’s convenient for you.
