(Torrington, CT) – Charlotte Hungerford Hospital (CHH) Medical Walk-In will be offering scheduled 15-minute physical exams for children over 7 years old as they return to school or other programs in the fall. The special exam times will be offered from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. on August 14th, 21st, and 28th and September 4th by appointment.
Dr. Gregg Grinspan, Medical Director of the CHH Medical Walk-In said, “We are excited to offer physical exams to children from throughout our service area. It is crucial that every student is healthy as they return to school or a care provider in the fall so that they can continue to learn and grow.”
Patients are asked to arrive at least 10 minutes early for their appointment and must have all immunization records and paperwork required by the school or other care facility. Without the proper immunization records from the patient’s Pediatrician, the providers will be unable to provide a physical exam. Pediatricians as well as the school, if the child attended the same school the year before, should have these immunization records. Patients should check with their insurance companies prior to their visit to see if their insurance coverage provides physicals at walk-in/urgent care centers, or if they will have to pay out-of-pocket.
If a patient comes into the center on any day other than the four Thursdays physicals will be offered, there is a short wait and they have their immunization records they will be seen for a physical exam. Otherwise, they will be given an appointment for one of the designated Thursdays that is most convenient for them.
