School Physicals

Tampa Bay Children starting school for the first time or students moving to Florida from another state are required by the Florida Department of Health to have a school physical, and LifeWorks offers this as a family care service.

The exam is performed at our Clearwater clinic by the Nurse Practitioner and she will check the following:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Vital signs
  • Eye chart test
  • Ears
  • Throat
  • Lungs
  • Heart
  • Musculo-skeletal
  • Alertness

In addition, the parents will be asked some questions about the student’s behavior, activities, nutrition and emotional well-being.

Upon completion of the physical, the student will be given a completed report to take to school.

About Dr. Minkoff

In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established LifeWorks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
