Over the next month or so, we’re again supporting area student athletes with free sports physicals. Like last year, Northwest Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine and the Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital Foundation are teaming up to make a donation to local schools for each physical donated by Dr. Martin and staff! 2011 physicals generated $1000 for the schools, we’re hoping to break that record! Your child doesn’t have to be a current patient with us. Contact the office at 541.386.2300 to schedule. Please be advised that sports physicals include only a portion of your child’s regular yearly checkup, and should not take the place of the more complete exam. Most insurances, and OR/WA medicaid, cover yearly physicals for children and immunizations when necessary.
