If my son gets a sports physical, does this mean he can skip his annual physical at the doctor’s office?

The pre-participation physical is NOT a substitute for your child’s annual complete physical with his or her pediatrician or primary care physician. The focus of this annual visit is much different and should never be ignored or avoided in your child’s best interest. Vaccination status, psychosocial history exploration, in addition to a much deeper history and physical exam are critical in maintaining excellent health in our children and keeping them safe.
