Physical, where?

We have a new racer coming to driver school from Canada. He is having a problem with quickly getting a physical. At one time Wixom Health center was good place to go for an "in and out" physical. Reviews for this place are not so good now. So, can someone recommend a place for him to get his physical? I don't know if the access to such has changed under Obamacare.

Maybe at a Minute Clinic? IIRC Merritt got hers at one... just schedule a "sports physical"...

Thanks. Never heard of them but I can google it. Is it like an Urgent Care facility? Maybe that's also an option.

Even lower-key; we have one in a CVS up the road in Clawson...

I would think you could go to any urgent care and get a sports physical. They are just an on demand doctors office. Pay cash and I don't think they care who you are.

Yup - and my understanding is that a Nurse Practitioner can also sign off on same.

He has made an appointment at an Urgent Care so will be joining us for driver school. Thanks for the input(s)
