Summertime is here! That means fun in the sun, but it is also a perfect time to come in for a well check visit and get any sports/physical forms or medication authorization forms taken care of! Submit the forms with your portion completed using your Patient Portal account, or schedule an appointment online if it has been more than 2 years since your child's last Well Child Check-up.
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions:
Q: “My child comes in multiple times a year for medication checks and sick visits. Do these visits count as wellness checks?”
A: No, these are different types of appointments. We need to have seen your child for a full wellness exam (also called a physical, well check, annual, yearly, etc.) within the last 2 years. If it has been more than 6 months since your child’s last wellness exam, you will need to complete the Allegro Health History Questionnaire before a sports physical or camp health form can be signed by the provider. Please check with your school or program as some require a full wellness exam once a year.
Q: “What is the best way to submit my form?”
A: Submit forms with your portion completed using your Patient Portal account or by dropping them off at a clinic location. If you do not have a portal account and would like to sign up for one, please fill out this form. Photos of forms cannot be accepted.
Q: “When will my form be available?”
A: Our providers fill out forms in between seeing patients, so please allow 2 business days (excluding weekends & holidays) for forms to be completed. The best way to have your forms handled in a timely fashion is to make sure that your portion of all forms are filled out completely.
Q: “How will I receive the forms when they are ready?”
A: You can choose to have the form returned automatically through the Patient Portal within two business days, or you can pick up the form from the clinic. If you do not have a portal account and would like to sign up for one, please fill out this form. If you request to pick the form up from the clinic, you will receive a phone call when it is ready.
Q: “Can I reuse my sports physical form from last year?”
A: The schools determine whether or not this is allowed. Allegro Pediatrics does not retain copies of completed forms, so we encourage families to make or request a copy before submitting.
