Dragonfly Health providers can perform general medical examinations for administrative purposes, as well as college physicals. They will review your medical history, conduct an exam, and recommend additional tests and diagnostics if necessary. Following the visit, your provider will fill out the required medical forms with the details of the physical assessment.
For an administrative physical, your provider will conduct a detailed review of your family’s medical history, any medicines taken, allergies, and current health status. They can review your immunization records to help ensure they are up to date. Administrative physicals may be necessary for various purposes, such as:
Administrative physicals include a general exam, immunization review, and the completion of the clinical sections of the documents that must be filled out as part of a required physical examination.

Bring any required documents, including a completed health and immunization history. Please note that your provider can verify vaccinations given at our facility or with proper documentation of immunizations administered by another health care provider. College and administrative physicals differ from annual wellness physicals. Instead of a wide-ranging assessment of your general health, these special-purpose exams are designed to confirm that your health is sufficient to participate in specific activities. An administrative or college physical exam is not intended to replace a comprehensive annual wellness exam.
Parents are reminded to fill out the parents’ sections of all the necessary forms before the visit. Doing so will help to simplify and expedite the physical exam process for you. Please collect the following medical information to bring to the examination:
While specific requirements vary, the physical exam session will provide you with an opportunity to discuss important healthcare matters with your provider. They can help you to be informed about your health.
