“RediClinic makes one of the busiest times of year easier for parents by helping students return to school healthy,” said Danielle Barrera, chief operating and marketing officer for RediClinic. “Parents may find it difficult to visit their pediatrician before the summer is over.

Get in. Get out. Get back-to-school-ready!”
During the physical exam, RediClinic clinicians provide a thorough evaluation of a child’s health status, which includes:
- Assessing growth and development by measuring height and weight.
- Checking vital signs such as pulse and blood pressure.
- Evaluating eyes, ears, nose and throat; neck, chest and lymph nodes; heart and abdomen; skin and muscles; and the joints and spine.
- Reviewing family medical history, past illnesses or hospitalizations and current medications.
- Ensuring all state-required vaccinations are current.
- Administering vaccines as needed.
- Offering acne consultations with recommended treatment solutions.
At the completion of the exam, RediClinic provides parents with a comprehensive printed report of their child’s health and vaccination status. RediClinic can also complete school-required physical forms that parents bring to the appointment. Clinic staff will also send a copy of the medical record to the child’s pediatrician.
