Pediatric Hospitalist, Dr. David Clutter says, “A sports physical is the chance to talk about any potential health issues an athlete might have, it includes a general physical exam and gives us the opportunity to check for history of concussion, history of issues or past injuries that a student-athlete might have.”

“This physical affords us the opportunity to check on vaccinations and address any problems that might become a bigger health concern down the road,” says Dr. Clutter.
