Sports Physicals / TB exams
If your child is playing sports and requires sports physicals prior to starting the season in Long Beach, call our office! We’ll schedule a physical for sports so your child can enjoy playing their favorite sport while your mind is put at ease that they are healthy and ready to play.
Some California school districts require new students to have a recent TB screening. We can provide a tuberculosis exam in our office. It consists of two parts: the first part involves injecting a tuberculin test into the top layer of the skin on the forearm. The second part consists of reading the results 48-72 hours after the initial injection. Upon examination, we will check for an in-duration or swelling at the injection site, document the result and coordinate with your child’s medical provider if necessary.
