volunteering q's--help

Just a quick one here. I’ve been filling out applications to volunteer at local hospitals and they are asking for a physician to sign off on me volunteering. the problem is that I don’t have a local physican since moving here and they want a local contact. should I just go to a medical center close to my work and make an appt with a doc and explain the situation to him and see if he’ll sign off or is there something else I should do? figured this might help someone else out too looking for the same answer.

I guess it depends on what they are asking the physician to “sign off on”. If it is just a sign off that you are in generally good health, then make an appointment for a basic physical at your local medical or occupational health center and that should suffice.

Do they specify exactly what the physician is signing for?
