JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas —
The staff at the 359th Medical Group Clinic are continually working to improve how they do business. In a continued effort to improve customer satisfaction, scheduling for annual sports physicals began June 26. Sports physicals will be conducted throughout July and into the beginning of August, specifically July 5 to Aug. 11.
These exams will be by appointment only; times vary depending on desired provider and requested date/time. These appointments are only intended for children between the ages of 10-18 years who are empaneled to the 359th Medical Group at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph.
This year, the 359th Medical Group clinic anticipates offering more than 300 sports physical appointments during this time. Unfortunately, if a child has any other medical issues, such as asthma, ADHD or medication refills, this will not be included in the sports physical and parents should schedule a regular well appointment to address these medical needs.
Sports physical appointments can be booked by calling the central appointment line at 916-9900, Monday – Friday between 6:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Parents are advised not to wait until the last minute to accomplish this school requirement. If the child’s well child appointment is current within the last year, this can serve for the requirement if a sports physical was performed at that time.
