Winona Health Pediatrics and Family Medicine providers remind parents that a well-child checkup is the perfect time to complete any required sports, camp or school physicals.
“An annual well-child visit is recommended for preventative care and to create a healthy and established relationship. We like to provide comprehensive care for your child all at once, and your child’s school or sports physical can be completed at the same time as their annual visit with just a little extra paperwork,” noted Winona Health Pediatrician, Sarah Lallaman. “It is best to bring any forms you need to have completed with you to the appointment, and then we can focus on the total care of your child and any concerns you may have.”
If you need a copy of your school’s sports physical forms, Minnesota and Wisconsin sports physical forms are available online at winonahealth.org/sportsphysicals. Parents are asked to complete their portion of the form before their child’s appointment if possible, allowing more time for parents to focus on their child’s visit.
Parents of children who were previously diagnosed with heart conditions or head injuries must schedule an appointment with a member of their regular healthcare team.
