Evening appointments for sports physicals, Aug. 13-16

Physician with high school age patient

With the first day of school just around the corner, UI Health Care is helping busy parents avoid the last-minute scramble to schedule well-child exams and sports physicals for their kids, ages 11-18.

From Monday, Aug. 13, through Thursday, Aug. 16, we’re setting aside 30-minute evening appointments from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at our Scott Boulevard location to help ease the last-minute rush. These appointments will include a well-child check with review and completion of your child’s school sports physical paperwork.

A well-child check is a full physical exam, so if a busy summer kept you from fitting in an appointment with your child’s regular provider, this is your opportunity to fulfill the school requirement while also helping to maintain your child’s overall good health in one convenient visit. These visits are reserved for older children, ages 11-18. Well-child checks for younger children should continue to be scheduled with your child's regular provider.

Call 1-800-777-8442 or log on to MyChart to make your appointment. New patients are welcome. Parents or guardians of new patients are strongly encouraged to bring a copy of the child’s immunization history to the appointment.
