Service: Physicals

Whether you need an annual wellness, physical or your child needs a physical to play sports, WeCare urgent care centers provide a variety of physical exam services on a walk-in basis.

Annual Physicals

We recommend having your annual physical performed by your Primary Care Provider (PCP). If you have selected a WeCare physician as your PCP, your routine annual wellness physical may be performed at WeCare. While we are always available for your urgent care needs, we recommend selecting one provider to see about chronic medical needs and perform your annual physical.

Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover “annual physicals” and WeCare does not perform the “Welcome to Medicare” exams on patients with Medicare as their primary insurance. However, we are happy to see patients using Medicare and will provide full and thorough physical exams while also addressing any medical concerns.

Sports Physicals

You can visit any WeCare center location to complete a sports physical exam, which is often required in order to participate in athletic programs. Please fill out the “patient to complete section” on all necessary forms provided by your school, team, or sports program prior to your visit and bring them with you. If you are unable to attend your child’s sports physical exam, please complete the ‘History’ section of the form provided by the school beforehand. A sports physical is to determine an athlete’s ability to safely engage in vigorous activity; it is not intended as a substitute for a general health maintenance exam.

School Physicals

WeCare offers convenient, walk-in school physicals. While you are welcome to see any of our providers during your visit, we recommend having your primary provider perform your child’s school physical, whether it is at WeCare or not. Before your visit, please complete the “patient to complete section” on any necessary forms as provided by your state, school, or academic program. Please check with your health insurance provider before your visit to ensure your school physical will be covered.

Camp Physicals

Some camps may require that attendees complete physicals before attending. Camp physicals are available at WeCare Family Health. A camp physical is not intended as a substitute for a general health maintenance exam. In some cases the form can be completed based on an annual wellness physical.

Employment Certificate Physicals

Many states require that a minor under age 18 obtain an employment certificate (or “working papers”) before beginning employment. These certificates often mandate the completion of a physical exam.

Department of Transportation (DOT) Physicals

Most professional and/or commercial drivers are required to pass regular DOT physical exams. WeCare offers DOT physicals performed by medical provider who are Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) certified and trained on DOT policies. For your convenience, WeCare certified providers are available to examine drivers on a walk-in, non-appointment basis

If your employer requires a pre-employment physical, please bring the relevant paperwork provided by your employer filled out as completely as possible prior to your visit.
