Same Day Physical in Agoura Hills
Children and teenagers need regular physical exams to make sure that they're healthy and fit for an active lifestyle. Parents can schedule the appointments just before the start of the school year, during the holidays, or around your child's birthday.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that children and youth receive proper health care. In fact, the state requires parents to submit a health certificate indicating that your child has received a medical check up in the last 18 months at the start of the school year.
Kids & teens Medical Group offers fast services for your child's physical exam. You can expect:
- Complete physical exam
- Routine vaccinations
- Height and weight measurements
- Hearing and vision screening
- Nutritional assessment and dietary guidance
- Developmental screening
- Day care, sports, and camp physicals
- Blood work screening
We recommend continuous regular physical exams, preferably with one doctor, for complete awareness of the child's growth and development over time. For instance, vital changes begin to occur during adolescence. As your child transitions from childhood to puberty, having a doctor to monitor his/her progress can help to ensure that any problems are detected as early as possible, and appropriate measures taken with consideration of past injuries or illnesses that the child may not remember to mention when filling the forms.
If your child, tween, or teen participates in a physical sport, it's important that you schedule at least one physical exam per year. After an injury, it is also important that your child gets examined by our doctors, even if the school has a medical care center, just for your peace of mind.
Expedited physical exams
We realize that some parents prefer to schedule their children's physical exams separately from other exams to save on time. Whether this is a routine annual checkup, your child's first ever physical exam, or an emergency visit, we will schedule your child for the complete physical so it's completed as soon as possible, and preferably the same day.
We will also take the opportunity to offer wellness guidance and advice, discuss diet and exercise options, and measure BMI for optimal health.
