Additionally, we strongly encourage area secondary school athletes to obtain their pre-participation physical examination with their primary care physician.  Currently, we plan on conducting pre-participation physical examinations for area secondary school athletes on Saturday, July 27th from 8:00 to 11:00 A.M. in Math & Science Building on Bibb Graves Drive.  Teams or individuals may be scheduled for physical examinations on this date by returning this form to me prior to July 23, 2024.  Please 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 on a very limited basis 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.

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 7, 2024.


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.  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  Please check this site as needed throughout the year for related information and updates.
