Can you believe school is around the corner and about to start soon? Well if you’re like me and you have a teenager in high school or kids who like to play sports then you’ll know that the schools often require kids to get a sports physical so they can participate.
Well have I got the life saver place to get this done quick and easily! I’m super excited to say that CVS Minute Clinic now offers sports physicals for a low fee along with their every day services like flu shots. I was super happy to learn that my favorite local CVS near me had just opened their own Minute Clinic so we didn’t have to go far to get my teens sports physical done before school starts so he can play baseball.
We had to run and get it done over the weekend before I left for the BlogHer 12 convention. As you can see the sign was waiting out front showing me exactly what I was looking for!
I thought it was going to be super crowded being the weekend but we were extremely surprised to find it not busy at all!
They had lots of information for you to learn about the Minute Clinic as you waited. You also filled out your information on a computer touch screen kiosk before you went into the room.
The woman practitioner giving him the exam did an excellent and very thorough job in giving him the exam. I had to be in the room for some parts of the exam to make my boy feel more comfortable as she had to do some sensitive tests to him since he is a boy. She tested the neurological and well as physical aspects of my teen.
The practitioner then printed out a detailed form of the entire exam results and she signed the forms my teen needed signed for school in order to play sports as well as gave us some more info on Minute Clinic should we ever need to come back for anything. You can see it all in the pics below.
I would say it was a 1st great experience CVS Minute Clinic! I highly recommend getting your child’s sports physical done there since it is super simple with affordable prices, and convenient locations.
