Walk-In Physical Exams for Residents of Clarkston, MI
Child development experts generally agree that group activities benefit young people in many ways, including helping them stay physically fit, mentally alert, and socially engaged with their peers. If you’re a parent, you probably want to encourage your child to participate in team sports or perhaps take advantage of attending a camp away from home. Many of these types of activities require a physical exam before your child can participate. Although your pediatrician or primary care physician can typically provide this service, you may have to book an appointment weeks in advance. If that doesn’t work for you and you live in the Clarkston, Michigan, area, you can turn to Springfield Urgent Care for several types of physical exams. We’re open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, and we offer short wait times with no appointment needed.
What to Expect During a Physical Exam at Our Urgent Care Clinic
At Springfield Urgent Care, we offer the following types of commonly requested physical exams:
The primary purpose of these exams is to ensure that your child is physically able to participate safely in the planned activities. When you and your child arrive at our urgent care clinic, you’ll be greeted warmly by our caring staff, and you’ll consult with our board-certified doctor or a certified physician’s assistant. The provider will want to discuss your child’s medical and family history and will conduct a physical exam that may include vision and hearing tests, as well as taking vital signs and assessing respiratory, heart, and joint function. He or she will fill out any forms or questionnaires that are required and provide a summary that may clear your child for participation in the proposed activity or approve participation with certain precautions, such as having an inhaler available in case of an asthma attack.
The Springfield Urgent Care team is fully supportive of community organizations that encourage children and teens to be active in sports and other physical activities – in fact, we sponsor a number of youth events in the Clarkston area. We also offer affordable physical exams and accept many insurance plans.
