Sports Physicals

What is a sports physical?

Most middle schools and high schools in California require a sports physical prior to participation on a team.  Busy schedules make it tough to schedule time with your primary care physician.  At Urgent Care and TeleHealth in Napa, Sonoma and Benicia, we make it convenient for you by offering after-hours and weekend appointmentsIn addition walk-ins are always welcome!

The sports physical exam is also known as a preparticipation physical examination (PPE).

The exam helps determine whether it’s safe for your child to participate in a certain sport. Most states actually require that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season. But even if a sports physical isn’t required, doctors still highly recommend getting one.

Is a sports physical covered by insurance?

We do not accept medical insurance for sports physicals.

Testimonials

What They Say

"Fantastic experience from booking the appointment, checking in and being seen. The staff were friendly, efficient and professional. They were knowledgeable about current medical problems. Testing was done very quickly. The doctor was awesome. One of the best I’ve ever seen in my 75 years of life. (Mind you I don’t remember the doctors I saw in my first three years) Symptoms, history, physical exam and test results were evaluated quickly. Diagnosis was made, recommendations and medication given. I was assured it I didn’t improve in 24 hours to return. Overall this group would get a 💯 and a gold star."
