Walk-In Sports Physicals Can Make Life Easier for Parents in Waterford, MI

Trio of teenage girls in team uniform shirts and shorts on a soccer field with a girl in the lead preparing to kick a soccer ballSo your child came home from school on a Friday, waving a sports physical form and announcing plans to participate in an athletic program. “That’s great!” you say. Until you take a closer look and see that the form must be signed by a qualified medical practitioner and returned to the program coordinators by Monday. There’s no way you’ll be able to book a regular doctor’s appointment for a sports physical for your child in time to meet the deadline.

But if you’re in the Waterford, Michigan, area, you won’t have to dash your child’s expectations because of a tight deadline. Springfield Urgent Care in White Lake is only a short drive away, offering walk-in sports physicals and other pediatric urgent care services from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. Our wait times are short, and we also offer the option of using our online check-in service to save your spot in line before you arrive.

What’s Involved in a Sports Physical at Springfield Urgent Care?

Our physician-led team of certified medical practitioners is experienced and highly qualified to perform sports physicals and other types of physical exams required for participation in school and camp programs. If your child or teen received a form from the coach or program coordinator, it’s important to bring that with you when you visit our clinic because it may ask for specific information that’s not included in a standard physical. If your child wears glasses or contact lenses, make sure you bring those with you to the exam as well.

Generally, a sports physical is intended to ensure that children are physically able to safely participate in the activities associated with their chosen program. It typically consists of:

  • A check of your child’s vital signs, height, and weight
  • Review of your child’s medical history, including existing health conditions and any medications your child takes
  • A physical exam that may include vision and hearing tests

At the end of your sports physical, you’ll receive a signed form that indicates whether it’s safe for your child to participate in the program with or without restrictions.

“I don’t usually like going to any urgent care because of my bad experience BUT I love this Location. The staffs and the doctor are very nice and very friendly. One of the female nurses name Carrie. She is my favorite because she was nice and gentle when she was care for me. She also did my first Covid on my first visit there months ago. Thank You!!”

“By far the best Urgent Care I’ve ever been too. First, the employees are amazing and full of positivity. They know what they are doing and get stuff done. You actually feel safe there. I’ve never felt safe in an urgent care before from bad experiences until I walked into this one. I’m beyond grateful. I have to mention how beautiful and CLEAN the building is. If you need an urgent care go to this one you will not be disappointed.”

“I rarely ever leave ratings of places, and don't think I've ever commented on one, if I have I don't remember doing so but this place is AMAZING!! I was in and out so fast. ALL of the staff was so nice and so efficient. The rooms are clean and the waiting room is so nice and clean and cute. They even have a coffee machine with options if hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee and even chicken broth which I thought was just so thoughtful!! I won't go anywhere else if I need an urgent care center!!”
