Often schools and athletic programs will require forms for sports participation. As your child’s pediatrician, we feel we are in the best position to evaluate your child, as we know your child best. We will ensure your child is healthy to participate and does not have any underlying health concerns. We monitor vision and hearing. We focus on any pulmonary and cardiac issues. We check blood pressure and pulse rate. We look for risks for concussions and do a full skeletal and orthopedic assessment.
If any serious health concerns are identified at the time of the evaluation, we may refer your child to a specialist for further evaluation or notify the coaches of any areas of concern.
