As each new school year and sports season starts, Dr. Dumbacher and Dr. Ng at Oviedo Family Medicine Specialists help ensure the students and players are ready to take the field or hit the books by providing school and sports physicals to the youth of Oviedo and Winter Springs.

As many parents know, there are certain immunizations that are required by law for entrance into certain Oviedo and Winter Springs schools and organized sports. The medical team at Oviedo Family Medicine Specialists will ensure that all required immunizations are up to date, as well as perform all required elements of the physical exam. Depending on the age of the child, school attending or sport participating in the following may be performed or discussed during the school and sports physical:

  • Check blood pressure
  • Discuss family history and order any related lab tests
  • Ensure immunizations are up to date
  • Evaluate growth and development, including height, weight and body mass index
  • Provide preventive care (guidance if overweight or sexually active)
  • Review medications currently taking
  • Screen for or monitor behavioral or emotional issues, such as depression or anxiety
  • Talk about health problems or injuries
  • Test for hearing or vision problems
