We provide care to prevent disease. A review of a Patient’s personal medical history, social history and family history is conducted. Annual exams include a clinical exam, counseling on healthy diet and practices and utilization of age, gender and identified risk associated screening tools specific to each patient. This may also include Laboratory evaluation such as blood work for blood counts, liver/kidney/thyroid function, electrolytes, sugar levels, cholesterol levels, hormone panel, vitamin deficiency, urinalysis, imaging studies.
Sports physicals or Preparticipation Physical examinations are conducted to help discern whether it’s safe for a Patient to play a specific sport. It also helps identify existing health problems that may interfere sports performance and how to to deal with it. An emphasis on measures to prevent injury is also reviewed.
The ultimate goal of the sports physical is to make sure you're safe while playing sports, not to stop you from playing.
We recommend parents/legal guardians to complete the designated school Preparticipation Physical Examination forms prior to coming for an appointment. While the doctor will review the patients history during the visit, it is imperative to identify if there is any significant family medical history present as part of the PPE.
