ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - Doctors at Mercy Hospital in Ardmore are offering free physicals for student athletes.
The physicals are offered at Mercy's Primary Care Clinic at 1020 North Commerce Street from 6 to 8 p.m Tues. July 17, Thurs. July 19, Tues. July 24 and Thurs. July 26.
Pediatrician Derek Landis says they've offered the free physicals for student athletes for 6 years and last year saw about 500 kids.
"The driving force behind doing these physicals the way we are doing them now is we are trying to unmask those hidden conditions the patients and family's may not even know about," Dr. Landis said.
Dr. Landis says all the student athlete needs to bring is their pre-participation physical forum and a parent if they are under 18.
