Our Urgent Care facilities do offer sports and camp physicals. If your school or camp requires a signature from an MD, please contact the Urgent Care to ensure an MD is available. (NOT required for IHSAA physical forms.)

In addition to simply walking in, we do offer a “Save a Spot” option that allows you to save your spot in line and decrease your wait time at the Urgent Care facility rather than making an appointment.
