Back to school, back to the doctor

SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -- The 20th Medical Group is now scheduling appointments for school and sports physicals through our appointment line, (803) 895-2273, or via MiCare

Our pediatric clinic is advising parents and guardians to schedule physicals now for those children who have not had a physical in the past year. Booking your appointment early ensures a greater selection of appointments to choose from. Right now, July and August appointments are available. To minimize your wait time we recommend that school and sports physical paperwork is completed prior to checking in for your appointment.

Paperwork may be picked up by a parent or guardian before an appointment at the pediatric clinic front desk. These appointments are specifically scheduled for children's physicals only. We will not be able to discuss other issues or concerns during these short appointments.
