Kind Reminder:  Wearing a mask is still mandatory in the office.  Our medical staff will continue to wear masks.  Dr. Hayford will review the current number of COVID and FLU numbers in the city to determine how long the mask mandatory will continue in his office.


If you do not have a mask, we have them available for purchase or you may reschedule the appointment.  Thank you for your cooperation.


Refills will be process within 48-business hours of receipt of the request.  Refill requests received on Fridays will be processed on the following Monday or business day.

48-hour advanced notice is required for all refill medications.  The physician must review every chart prior to refilling any medications.

The on-call physician will not call in prescription refills.


When and where should we go for a

sports physical?

  • Most children should go to their regular doctor's office to get a sports physical, since your doctor knows your child and their health history best.​

  • Schedule sports physicals at least 6 weeks before the sports season starts. If Dr. Hayford finds a problem, this should leave enough time for tests or treatment, if needed.

  • IHSAA requires a physical be done between April 1 and student’s first practice in preparation for interschool athletic participation.  


Does My Child Need a Regular Physical Too?

  • The sports physical focuses on well-being as it relates to playing a sport. Regular checkups are still important for your child’s overall health and well-being. If you plan ahead, we may be able to do both types of exams during one visit. When scheduling your annual visit, mention you need a sports physical and a regular checkup so Dr. Hayford can set aside time to do both.



Our schedule does tend to fill before school starts.  Please plan accordingly and schedule early if you think your child will want to participate in a sport.  Thank you.
