What to expect DURING A School physical

In any school environment there are all sorts of germs, illnesses, bacteria and other health related issues that children are exposed to. With that said, our Bridgeport physicians can address any existing medical issues, ailments or illnesses your child may be suffering from in advance of starting their school season and throughout the season as well. Be sure to schedule your child’s school physicals to allow for proper management of your child’s health before, during and after school attendance and to help your child perform better both mentally and physical year in and year out.

What should I bring to the physical?

When you arrive for your child’s school physical be sure to have in hand your child’s immunization records, a list of any medications they take, as well as any forms that require the doctor to fill out and sign. We also recommend that you call ahead, in advance of your appointment, to ensure that we have any specific vaccines that your child may need.
