Yearly physicals/exams
With so many changes taking place during the teen years, annual physicals are more important than ever. In addition to a complete physical examination, these important visits give our providers the opportunity to discuss nutrition, puberty, family, social and school issues, safety, and behavior. The more teens understand about their physical growth and development, the more they will recognize the importance of active involvement in their own health care.

Sports physicals or PPEs
The overarching goal in performing a preparticipation physical evaluation (PPE) is to promote the health and safety of the athlete in training and competition. The PPE provides the medical background on which physical activity decisions will be made by the individual athlete’s physician or the team physician and associated medical staff.

Specific goals of a pre-participation sports physical include:
  • Determine that the athlete is in general good health
  • Assess the athlete's present fitness level
  • Detect conditions that predispose the athlete to new injuries
  • Evaluate any existing injuries of the athlete
  • Assess the size and developmental maturation of the athlete
  • Detect congenital anomalies that increase the athlete's risk of injury
  • Detect poor preparticipation conditioning that may put the athlete at increased risk

Pre-op physicals
If your child is scheduled for a procedure under anesthesia, most centers require a physical by your primary care physician prior to the procedure to be sure your child's health is optimized.

Acute sick visits
Having an illness is stressful. We understand that and want to help. Continuity of care is important to us, so we hope that you bring your child to us first. We will try our best to get you in the same day, but if that is not possible, we will give you advice and get you in the next day. Remember, we are here for your needs on Saturday mornings as well.

ADHD management
Initially we will help you to make a diagnosis of ADHD. Your child will be seen frequently until we are all satisfied with the treatment plan. At that point the recommendation is to evaluate continued progress every three months. Your child’s success is important to us!
