Coryell Health Medical Clinic has set aside appointments for sports and camp physicals, well child visits, and immunizations. Sports physicals for GISD, specifically junior high athletes, will need to be done before June 8th in order for participation in volleyball and basketball camps, as well as speed and strength training.
Sports & Camp Physicals Includes:
Physicians will check your athlete’s vitals, joints, and flexibility. They’ll also check your athlete’s vision and do a short fitness assessment to diagnose and recommend any possible limitations on physical activity. Texas actually requires that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season.
Well Child Check-Ups:
During these visits, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your child’s growth, development, behavior and other health issues with the goal of preventing illness and promoting the best possible health for your child. The American Academy of Pediatrics also provides information on what to expect from your child’s practitioner during a wellness visit. We recommend you write a list of any questions or concerns and bring it with you to the appointment.
What to expect:
· Recording of height & weight
· Blood pressure & body temperature check
· Test of hearing and vision
· Urine samples
· Complete physical exam
· Immunization booster shots
Please bring your child’s insurance card, a list of their medications and- if your child is not already a patient- bring their immunization record. If you need financial assistance, you can complete this form. If you have any questions, or to schedule a visit, please call (254) 865-2166.
