Yes, you can bring your child to family care for these physicals. Family care physicians are fully qualified to provide just about any type of physical exam, including school, sports, camp, and even annual physicals. At Portsmouth Family Care, children of any age can receive a physical exam.
It’s really convenient to get physicals done at a family care clinic because they can perform physicals right away, right on the spot! This is especially convenient when your child needs a physical right away, such as for school or sports, or if he or she lost the referral form for a physical exam.
Often, a physical exam is necessary when a child attends a new school or joins a new sports team. Quite often, it’s a pre-entry requirement. School and sports physicals are very similar to standard physical exams and annual physicals, which mean the physician, will check your child’s:
• Vitals, including his or her heart rate, blood pressure, etc.
• Body health, including his or her eyes, ears, nose, heart, lungs, skin, speech, and ability to walk
• Family health history and personal health history for any health conditions that are or could be recurring
• Vaccination history, and offer any vaccinations your child may need
For a sports physical, specifically, the physician will also check your child’s physical strength, motor functions, reflexes, and agility. And for a school physical, specifically, the physician will check your child’s development, such as his or her speaking and communication ability. During the physical, you’ll be present and able to ask the physician about any health concerns you have.
A typical physical exam costs $50 to $200 before insurance coverage is applied, but this depends on the type of physical and the provider. Usually, children’s physicals are on the lower end of the spectrum, and sports and school physicals are generally not covered by insurance. At Portsmouth Family Care, our rates are very affordable, and because our pricing varies, please contact us to learn more about our services and pricing.
