Summertime for kids might seem like all fun and games, but when you consider just how many different sports and activities your young ones can get up to during the peak of the season, it becomes more and more clear just how important getting your physical exams early can be. Not only do most summer camps, community sports teams, clubs, private lessons, and other organizations require them for participation, but the earlier you get them taken care of, the less likely it is you’ll have to wait in line behind everyone else who put it off. In fact, to help ensure you don’t waste any time, we’ve provided a few tips for preparing for sports physicals below!
Picking The Right Practitioner
Making an appointment with your primary care doctor isn’t always convenient for your schedule. If you have work during your offices traditional hours, or your days off are too sporadic, it can be difficult to set aside enough time to get your child’s physicals done. Getting all your summer physicals taken care of at AS Medical Group Madison Heights Urgent Care, is so much easier. Here, walk-ins are always welcome, and we offer a variety of physicals to help get your child ready for any sport, activity, or new school year.

Choose A Time That’s Convenient For You
Most of the time when you make an appointment, you only have so much one-on-one time with your doctor before it’s the next patient’s turn, which is usually just enough time to handle any tests that you came in for. This, however, can leave you very little time to ask questions your might have, or go over specific results of your physical/tests. That’s why, instead, if you have the free time you might as well walk-into AS Medical Group Madison Heights Urgent Care for a same day physical, where we can give you the time and attention you deserve.
