    The Importance of Physical Examinations

     

    Parents often ask if a physical is needed each year for school.  Only new students are required to have a physical on entrance.  However, physical examinations during each of your child’s developmental stages (early childhood, pre-adolescence and adolescence) are recommended.  These important examinations help your health care provider determine the general status of your child’s health and give you an opportunity to ask questions about health concerns.
