What’s Involved in a Physical Exam?
A primary care doctor, pediatrician or nurse will review the child’s medical history and perform a number of procedures to determine the health of a child, including these:
- Updating immunizations if needed
- Check height and weight
- Take blood pressure
- Listen to the heart and lungs
- Feel the abdomen
- Look in eyes, nose, throat and ears
- Check eyesight
- Test strength and flexibility
What to Bring to a School or Camp Physical?
Be sure to bring any forms given to you by the school, camp or activity. It’s helpful, especially with a new doctor, to bring any medications, a list of meds and dosages, or a photo of the bottles. Does your child wear eyeglasses or contact lenses? Bring those too.
School and camp physicals are a great time for parents to discuss any concerns or ask any questions they may have about their child, such as an old injury, allergies or new symptoms. Call today for an appointment that meets your family’s busy schedule.
