Additionally, we will be conducting pre-participation physical examinations  for area secondary school athletes on Saturday, July 20th from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. in Bibb Graves Hall Teams or individuals may be scheduled for physical examinations on this date by returning the linked form to me prior to July 14, 2014Please note that this will be the only time this year that we will be providing pre-participation physical examinations for area high school athletes.  Patients may also be scheduled to be seen by the physicians at this time as well.

It is essential that each athlete desiring a pre-participation physical examination be dressed in shorts and t-shirt and bring a medical history/physical examination form signed by their parents/guardian.  Without this signed form we will not be able to provide a physical examination.

After these dates the physicians will return on Saturday, August 9, 2014 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. and will be available in Bibb Graves Hall to evaluate athletic injuries and orthopaedic problems at this time.  Following this date, our physicians will resume their weekly schedule of seeing athletes and patients on Wednesdays from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. on August 13, 2014.

If you have injured athletes and patients that you would like for us to see at other times and dates we will be happy to comply whenever possible.  Our Center is usually open in the summer Monday - Thursday, 8:00-4:00 and on Fridays by appointment only (except June 25-28 when we will be closed due to professional meetings).   Appointments are encouraged and may be scheduled for these times (or other times and dates if necessary) by calling us at (205) 652-3450.  Please feel free to contact us if we can be of service to you.

We are now placing this information and any future updates on our web site at http://at.uwa.edu/mddates.asp.  Please check this site as needed throughout the year for related information and updates.
