School and Sport Physicals in Davidson, NC

Scheduling your child’s physical is the best way to take a proactive approach to their health. During a physical, our family physicians have the opportunity to monitor your child’s growth and development over the years. By staying up-to-date with your child’s physicals, you’ll be able to keep up with their vaccinations during their younger years, and can oversee any problematic health issues as they get older.

Davidson Family Medicine provides physicals for an assortment of reasons, whether it’s the start of the new school year, or they’re prepping for the upcoming sports season. Learn about the different types of physical exams and schedule your child’s appointment at Davidson Family Medicine today.

  • For Infants (less than 1 year old): We see all infants at 2 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year.
  • For Toddlers (1-3 years old): Your toddler needs a physical at 18 months, 2 years and 3 years old.
