Don’t Wait to get School or Sports PhysicalsJune 7, 2017
It’s likely your child will need a physical this year – Why not schedule it now?
For safety reasons, more and more organizations are requiring that a child have an up-to-date physical on file. Many parents wait until the last minute because getting to their primary care physician during work hours is difficult. Quick Care Med is open when you need us, and we can take care of that physical today – for just $45*!
What is the purpose of the physical?
If your child appears healthy, getting the physical might feel like a formality, and hopefully, it is. Unfortunately, potentially serious conditions can be lurking just below the surface. A physical can help us find any issues that might exist so they can be treated before becoming an emergency.
Your Quick Med Care provider can also identify areas of risk for your child, and make recommendations on how to stay safe and injury-free – both on and off the field.
What happens during the physical?
The physical is designed to get a picture of the overall health of the child in order to determine if he/she should have any restrictions on physical activity. To do this, the provider will take a short medical history to see if there are any areas of concern prior to the physical examination.
Next, the provider will check vital signs, including blood pressure and pulse. We will listen to the heart and lungs, and look in the ears, nose, and throat. Height and weight will also be noted, as well as any growth spurts that might be putting stress on the body.
Additional exams that might be performed include an eye exam – to see if corrective lenses are necessary – and an assessment of the joints to test flexibility and make sure no trouble is hiding there.
Each provider is a little different, and methods may vary, but rest assured that when your child comes to Quick Care Med for a physical, we will perform a thorough assessment.
No appointment is necessary, so come by anytime and we’ll get you in and out, and back to your busy schedule, as quickly as possible.
*Quoted price is for routine physical. If more testing is necessary, additional fees will apply. Prices are subject to change.
The entire staff was very caring. I had my toddler with me and she was a bit rowdy and they gave her crayons with coloring pages and stickers and even a lollipop to help keep her occupied.
My son scribbled on a piece of paper and handed it to one of the woman in the front, saying that is say how his ears hurt, she accepted it and posted it on the artwork wall, when the PA came in to see him he was made to feel like a big deal because he had known about the paper. This is a place where the staff really cares about their patients and go the extra mile for them
Have been there a few times and hey have always been very fast, kind, courteous and welcoming. Always very helpful especially the front desk. The employee Heather helped me with pharmacy, paperwork and everything I needed help with. Only quick care I go too because of her.
I absolutely love our nurse Tiffany. She made our visit so comfortable. I had two very sick little boys who did not want to go to the Dr. She made the at ease in an instant and she took such great care of them. This was at the Quick care on 441 in Ocala Fl. I'll go back to this one because of her. And recommended to all my friends and family. Thanks so much!
A Big THANK YOU, to the Staff at Quick Care Med, in Dunnellon!! My Husband was seen, for a couple different ailments, during his visit,, and the Two Practitioners who worked with Him, were AWESOME!

Great sweet people
I was there yesterday and I've never felt so shocked. The 3 girls I interacted with were the most pleasant and friendly caregivers I've ever dealt with. Idr the rep's name, but she was quick and prompt at taking all my info and with minimal Qs (kinda hard to answer when I have a cold), then Alexis took over. Very sympathetic, nice, and helpful. Then the physician saw me and was charismatic and very funny. Trying to keep me in good spirits. It was like all 3 were happy to be at their posts and to
Anytime, we've ever been there, all of the physicians are very caring and helpful, they don't rush or make you feel unimportant... I wish we could have them as our GP
Very friendly,professional. Very caring of patients.Victoria was excellent. Took time to listen and made you feel comfortable.
We had Zaib Kahn as the provider and NEVER have I seen such a good bedside manner, as they call it! AND he personally called this a.m. to ask how my husband is feeling! (The pharmacy was closed when we left the ofc., and they asked us to allow until 11 to pick up the RXs, but that's NOT YOUR fault ;D I'm thrilled w/ Mr. Kahn's service and may well use your clinic for ALL my medical needs!!!! THANK YOU
Professional staff, caring and organized. Prompt service for DOT related visits.
The absolute BEST! Everyone here is so nice! We've had to come in a few times & they've always taken great care of us. We're usually out within 20-30 min. All the girls up front are very nice & helpful (you don't find that too often), so is the girl that takes your vitals. Dr B is the amazing! He takes his time to listen to what's wrong & always has a big smile. If we could have this office as our primary care location we would
