by Liyya Hassanali

It seems like summer has only just begun, and yet, it’s time to start thinking about back-to-school physicals. Did you know that 26Health offers comprehensive pediatric care, including back-to-school physicals?

An annual physical at 26Health can ensure school-age kids are up-to-date on required immunizations and on track for growth and development. Sports physicals are also available. These physicals are required of student-athletes to clear them for participation in many school-sponsored sports.

Appointments for both types of physicals start to fill up fast as the start of the school year approaches. Don’t wait to schedule. Call 26Health today at (321) 800-2922 for the best appointment availability or book online.

26Health Primary Care: Care for Life

Pediatric care is part of 26Health’s suite of primary care services, which include men’s and women’s health, transgender health, mental health, and management of chronic health conditions. According to Stephanie Hunter, Associate Director of Clinical Services at 26Health, “At 26Health, we focus on mind, body, and soul. We like to bring diversity and inclusivity not only in our staff but also in the knowledge we can provide to our patients. All of our providers bring something different to the table. Catherine Ernotte is a Family Nurse Practitioner with over 10 years of Urgent care experience, Elizabeth Guelde is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with Acute Care experience, Dr. Shima Shekari is a Primary Care Doctor with Medical Cannabis Experience and I am a Family Nurse Practitioner with Endocrinology experience.”

“With such a diverse group of experienced providers, we focus on giving our patients an opportunity to have all kinds of services that can help them stay healthy and safe. We offer control of chronic conditions, preventive medicine, holistic approaches, psychiatric care, and most importantly, love. Once someone becomes our patient, they automatically become a part of our 26Health Family.”

Our Vision for Primary Care

26Health’s approach to healthcare delivery integrates traditional health care with mental health care. This ensures all patients receive the physical and emotional care and support they need to thrive. This holds true for children too. We see patients from birth through their teen years to track developmental milestones, manage chronic conditions, and assess their overall health and wellness so they can lead happy, healthy lives.

As your child grows and develops, their trusted 26Health healthcare team will be there to provide all routine medical care. This includes exams, labs, imaging, diagnostics, and treatment. We are also here to provide care for the emotional and lifestyle factors that can affect your child’s health too, like stress, diet, substance abuse, and sexual behavior.

“As a mom myself, I want to make sure that whoever is seeing my child has the experience and warmth to take care of them. I want parents to feel comfortable bringing their children to 26Health and know they will get ultimate, top-of-the-line care. We want children to be happy to see us and make their experience pleasant and fun,” Stephanie explained.

Back-to-school physicals play an important role in childhood health and wellness. Sports physicals provide a closer look at a child’s ability to play a sport safely.

“During regular physicals, we focus mainly on the overall well-being of the child. We check things like their immunizations, yearly labs, and provide vision and hearing screening. Sports physicals focus specifically on history of injuries, the athletes’ health history, and anything that relates specifically to the sport. We even offer EKGs here at the clinic, which are now required of student athletes.”

“At 26Health, we know how important their children’s health is to parents, which is why we make sure these physicals are a priority for our families at 26Health. We make the process fast and easy but most importantly, they get all their questions answered and parents feel confident in sending their kids back to school in good health. Parents should expect nothing but the best with friendly faces and care here. We are prepared to complete well checks, school physicals, sports physicals, and sick visits,” said Stephanie.
