If a Well Child Check has not been performed within the previous 12 months, or if your child needs immunizations, we will schedule a follow up appointment for your child. If you have insurance, it will be billed for the sports physical, any remaining amount will not be the responsibility of the patient/parent/guarantor, only if scheduling the sports physical on one of the above-specified dates. Appointments MUST be made in advance. If you have any questions or wish to schedule an appointment, please call 304-462-3415 or 304-462-7322.
