First Care Provides Convenient School Physicals in Naples, FL
The medical professionals at First Care in Naples, FL, make school physicals as efficient and hassle-free as possible. Many school districts require students to have their good health confirmed and documented by a physician before they are permitted to enroll in sports and other extracurricular activities. First Care offers a solution by performing fast, convenient, and affordable school physicals on a walk-in basis. Parents can rely on us to make sure that all of the necessary forms are completed promptly and correctly so that their children are ready to participate fully and safely in all school-related activities.
Many active families in the Naples, Florida, area turn to First Care when they need school physicals, and you should, too. Here’s why:
- While your primary care physician can perform school physicals as well, you’ll need to call ahead to schedule an appointment. In all likelihood, this will require you to spend valuable time on the phone (and on hold). And, after you finally get in contact with the office, it could be several days or even weeks before they are able to fit you into their busy schedule. This type of wait may not be feasible, especially if your child presented you with the paperwork at the very last minute, and the start of the school year is fast approaching.
- Another (albeit much less attractive) option is stopping by a 24-hour emergency room. However, school physicals are likely to be viewed as the very last priority of an overextended hospital staff that is dealing with trauma patients. As a result, you and your child will likely have to sit in a crowded waiting area for several hours. What’s more, after you finally get to see an ER physician, you’ll probably face a big bill, because the copays for ER visits are generally much higher than the copays for urgent care clinic and physicians’ office visits.
In reality, neither of these options makes much sense for school physicals. But, with the First Care urgent care clinic available to you, there’s no need to wait weeks, days, or even hours to obtain one. You and your child can simply swing by our Naples, FL, location after work or school, see a physician, and be on your way with your completed medical forms in hand. School physicals have never been easier.
