What to expect during a school physical

During the school physical the doctor will talk with you and your child about overall health and developmental issues. The doctor will perform a thorough examination that includes vision, hearing, vitals and a variety of other health services as well. It is important for parents to understand the many germs, bacteria and illnesses that are present in the school environment and ensure that their children receive proper vaccinations and immunizations as needed. Here at Fairfield DOCS Urgent Care our team of physicians strive to provide the highest quality medical care and treatment in addition to necessary school physicals and vaccinations to all our student patients.

What should I bring to the physical?

When you arrive for your school physical be sure to have in hand your child’s immunization records and a list of any medications they may take. You should also bring along any school forms that the doctor needs to sign. If your child needs a specific vaccination, we suggest you call ahead to be sure we have the vaccine available at the time of your visit.
