Sports physicals too involved for instant clinic visit

Dr. Jerold Stirling, the chair of Pediatrics at Loyola, explains why a sports physical is a detail-specific exam that is too involved for an instant clinic. These physicals also allow adolescents time to talk with an adult other than their parents about important issues like mental health and smoking in a private setting.
