Balboa High school

MEDICAL CORNER

Welcome to another fantastic school year!  Just want to share with you about obtaining a sports physical for your child, we understand that your child has come home and said “I need my sports physical or else the coach won’t let me participate or practice, and I need it by….”  Here are some suggestions on getting sports physical: 

1.) Call your child’s primary care doctor first to find out when your child had his/her last physical.  If the physical has been within 1yr., take the form to your doctor to have it filled out.

2.) If your child does not have a primary doctor or no insurance, please call the nurse at the Teen clinic 469-4512.

3.) We will do our best to accommodate students.  Since we are a small clinic our community priority is to especially serve families without insurance.

Also, to take care of your youth, parental consent is required for primary care services; we have consent packets available in Chinese, Spanish and English.  You or your youth are welcome to come by and pick up a packet or we may send a packet home for you to complete.  Thank you so much.
