Methodist Mansfield Medical Center and Mansfield ISD Partner for Athletic Physicals August 2nd

Jul 22, 2014 07:33PM ● Published by Brian Ostrovsky

Methodist Mansfield’s Quin Thomas, RN, takes the blood pressure of student athlete Emily Wilson at Midlothian High School.

As a student athlete annual physicals are a part of life and they ensure students are safe and healthy playing sports.

In addition to offering $20 athletic physicals to some 5,000 middle school and high school students, Methodist Mansfield Medical Center will also offer free optional echocardiogram screenings at Methodist Mansfield Medical Center located at 2700 E. Broad Street in Mansfield.

An echocardiogram is a test in which ultrasound is used to examine the heart to help detect abnormalities and/or other cardiovascular conditions that may affect student athletes,

“This is an incredible opportunity for our student athletes to have a quality physical exam,” said Mansfield ISD Athletic Director Debbie Weems. “The generous donations of time and equipment mean many of our students will have access to comprehensive tests.”

Information about the physicals can be found on the events page below:

A number of local volunteers will be participating

The sports physicals and echocardiogram screenings will be performed by volunteer nurses, allied health professionals, and independently practicing physicians from Methodist Mansfield.  Sports echos will be led by Alan Taylor, MD, cardiologist on the medial staff at Methodist Mansfield. Dr. Darin Charles, MD, and Jeff McDaniel, MD, will lead the team of physicians in performing the sports physicals. 

“Our goal is to provide a quality UIL physical exam to ensure all of our athletes can compete safely,” said MISD Athletic Trainer Eric White. 

What to expect

Parents of middle school and high school student athletes in Mansfield ISD who wish to participate in the echocardiogram screening must complete a medical history questionnaire and sign medical releases prior to the screening. The forms are available from MISD athletic directors or on the website www.mansfieldisd.org

Echocardiogram screenings will be offered on a first come/first served basis and will be conducted by appointment only by calling 1-877-637-4297. Parents must accompany their teens during this painless non-invasive test. 

The sports physical meets UIL requirements to medically clear students before they can participate in any organized sports activity.

Texas law prohibits hospitals from practicing medicine. The physicians on the Methodist Mansfield Medical Center medical staff, including those participating in this event, are independent practitioners who are not employees or agents of Methodist Health System.
