Henry’s past medical history reveals no hospitalizations, surgeries, or allergies. Henry does not take any medication and denies use of any dietary supplements.

All other aspects of the exam are normal. Please write up the physical exam for this child, addressing pertinent systems in both the Review of Systems (Subjective) and the Physical Exam (Objective).
