Where can I get a physical fast?
You certainly could go to your primary care physician for a physical, but you’ll have to make an appointment for it, so this isn’t the best option if you need a physical right away. The better option, by far, is urgent care! At an urgent care clinic like ours, one of the physicians can give you a physical without you having to book an appointment first. You won’t have to wait long either as the wait time at urgent care is very low. Just come on by, walk right in, and ask our staff for any kind of physical, then shortly after, you’ll be seeing a physician! Anyone of any age can get a physical at urgent care.
Does urgent care do sport physicals? Does urgent care do school physicals?
Urgent care does annual physicals, work physicals, sports physicals, school physicals, and more. The physicians at urgent care are fully qualified and fully capable of performing physicals, and can do so on a walk-in basis. This means that if you’re joining a sports team right away and you need a sports physical even today, you can get one at urgent care. Or if your child is at school or attending a new school and needs a physical right away, urgent care can accommodate you.
There’s another big advantage of going to urgent care for a physical: it’s really affordable for many patients or their parents. Call us here at AFC Urgent Care Bradenton if you’d like to learn more about the physical exams we provide and their costs.
What happens during a sport or school physical?
These two types of physicals are pretty similar to each other and standard physical exams, but there are some differences. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect during a sports or school physical with us at AFC Urgent Care Bradenton. We’ll check:
- Vital signs (heart rate, weight, and blood pressure)
- General health (eye, ear, nose, heart, lung, and skin health)
- Speech and motor functions
- Family health history and personal health history for any recurring health issues or risks
- Vaccination history and suggest any important vaccinations
- With a sports physical, we’ll also check physical strength, reflexes, and agility
