Unlike many sports physical events, OakBend Medical Group doctors will be performing many of the tests and reviewing all test results on site.  Dr. Long Cao will be covering the cardiac portion of the testing which includes EKGs and echocardiograms to help prevent sudden death. Last year there were two students with potential problems that were found early.

Dr. David Wallace, sports medicine, will be performing physicals; Dr. Christine Nguyen, podiatrist, will do foot exams to make sure the students are wearing the proper shoes and Drs. Fred Speck and Enrique Pena-Garcia, orthopedics, will be there to address any issues that might be found with the students and to sign off on the exams.

No appointments is necessary, students will be seen in the order of arrival. Please show up with the student’s paperwork filled out to expedite the process. Students must be accompanied by an adult.
