Pediatrics

Imagine if Michael Jordan never played basketball because he didn’t complete the required physical. Don’t skip the trip to the doctor and let your child miss an opportunity to learn a sport or join a summer camp. Physicals are available at many primary care physician offices and we participate with most major insurance carriers. For your convenience, extended hours are available at some locations.
