School & Sports Physicals

If your child needs a school or sports physical – we can help! Malama Pono’s team of skilled healthcare professionals are trained to give comprehensive examinations. The Hawaii Department of Education requires students to have a completed Student Record to enter school, and we can complete this document for you. Some schools also require a sports physical to certify your child’s fitness for participation on a sport or club team. By adhering to school guidelines and standards, Malama Pono helps students fulfill mandatory physical evaluation requirements with ease. Call and make an appointment today at (808) 246-9577.
