Monroe Clinic No Longer Offering Pre-Participation Exams, Parents Must Schedule Wellness Exams

 

August 1, 2019



Dear Editor,

The American Academy of Pediatrics and Family Medicine recommend that all children receive a wellness exam on an annual basis. This wellness visit is a complete medical exam specific to adolescent health issues.

An adolescent wellness exam begins with a complete medical history, including a review of the patient’s medical chart, and an opportunity to update vaccinations. At the visit, the patient will have a complete medical exam where we listen to the heart and lungs, as well as examine range of motion, flexibility and strength. In addition to the complete medical exam, we offer depression screenings and discuss social interactions that impact health and attitude.

A wellness visit will meet the needs of a sports physical in a more comprehensive way. For that reason, Monroe Clinic no longer offers the $25 pre-participation exams. We are committed to providing the best possible care to your children.

If you are looking for a healthcare provider, visit http://www.monroeclinic.org/drconnect. For more information about wellness visits, go to http://www.monroeclinic.org/sportsmedicine.

Sincerely,

Eric Katzenberger, Athletic Trainer
