School Physical Exam
A school physical exam is required by most schools to check your child’s overall health before the start of a new academic year. Physical exams for school are a necessary part of maintaining a healthy community. If your child is attending a school in Los Angeles, book an appointment for a school physical at our Beverly Hills medical office to prepare your child before they go back to school.
Why are school physicals important?
Most schools want to make sure students are in good shape to participate in sports activities so they request a school or sports physical. If there are any health issues detected during your child’s physical, the school staff will be informed and become better prepared to provide special care for your child. Another important aspect of a kids physical exam is to make sure their vaccinations are up to date so that they are fully protected against infectious diseases that can be easily transmitted in classrooms or playgrounds. That’s why it’s ideal to book an appointment for a school physical during the spring or summer before the beginning of the next academic year.
