Walk-in physicals are available at the MinuteClinic inside CVS at Getz and Illinois Road.

  • The physician's (PA or LPN) signature must be hand-written. NO signature stamps will be accepted!
  • The physician's (PA or LPN) signature AND license number must be on page 2.
  • If we receive an IHSAA physical with a stamped doctor's signature, it will not be accepted and considered invalid.
