School & sports physicals
Many schools, camps and sports leagues require physical exams for your child before participation. This is to make sure your child does not have any underlying health conditions that might endanger her or others during the activity. The physicians at Novant Health Meadowlark Pediatrics regularly complete school and sports physicals for children of all ages. If your child is in need of a physical before school or another activity:
- Please contact our office well in advance to schedule your appointment. Often, these physicals can be completed at the same time as your child's annual doctor's visit.
- Please bring any forms you have been given that need to be completed. We will not always have access to these forms in our office.
- Contact your insurer if you are concerned about payments or copayments that will be due at the time of this visit. Not all school and sports physicals are covered by insurance.
