Medical Evaluations

Forensic Medical Exams are head-to-toe examinations of the body by a specially-trained medical provider. Our forensic medical exams are completed by Dr. Michael Foxworth. During the exams, the medical provider assesses the child for evidence of child abuse injuries or neglect. This medical evaluation is usually not painful or invasive.


Why is the exam important?

  • To ensure the health and well-being of the child

  • To reassure the child that everything is okay with their body

  • To diagnose and treat medical conditions that may be related to abuse

  • To document any possible physical and forensic findings

  • To allow for collection of evidence that is present on the child’s body or clothing
