Farmington Hills, MI (July 20, 2006)--- Is your child an athlete at his school? If so, a sports physical is probably required. A sports physical is a visit to the doctor to make sure your child is in good enough shape to participate in the sport she wants to play.
Botsford family physicians will be performing sports physicals on Thursday, August 3 from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Botsford Primary Care Physicians located at 27031 West Warren in Dearborn Heights.
There will be two parts to the sports physical, including medical history and a physical exam. The medical history will include questions about illnesses and injuries your child has had, such as asthma or a broken leg. The doctor will also want to know about medical problems that run in your family or any medicines your child takes on a daily basis. The other part is a physical exam, which includes checking your child’s weight, height, blood pressure, hearts, lungs, ears, nose throat and eyesight.
Please remember to bring any forms necessary for the school’s athletic program. The exams cost $20, and cash, check, Visa and Mastercard are accepted. No appointments are necessary. For more information, please feel free to contact Botsford Primary Care Physicians at (313) 274-3320.
The Botsford Health Care Continuum is an integrated system of care, which includes Botsford General Hospital, the Botsford Physician Network, Community Emergency Medical Service, the Botsford Continuing Care Corporation and the Botsford Center for Health Improvement.
