Physical Examinations

To ensure the health and well-being of our patients, the physicians at Brookville Pediatric and Internal Medicine have created a schedule for physical exams. Infants should be seen for an initial newborn visit when they are a couple days old and then again at two weeks old if deemed necessary by the physician. After that, the schedule for visits is: 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months and 2 years of age.

Children from 2 and up are seen yearly for physical exams to ensure proper growth and development and attainment of appropriate milestones.*

Adults should have yearly physical examinations with their primary care physician.

School enrollment and sports clearance forms can be filled out at the time of your visit. Most schools require sports physicals to be on or after April 15 to be considered current for the following school year.

Immunizations

The physicians of Brookville Pediatric and Internal Medicine firmly believe in the safety and effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives. We believe that all children and young adults should receive the recommended vaccines on time and accordance with the schedule published by the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics. To ensure the best care and to protect all patients from vaccine-preventable illnesses, we require full immunizations, on time for children seen in our office. New patients who are not up-to-date on their immunizations will be provided with a schedule to get the vaccinations caught up, as part of our care.

 Prescription Refills

Medication refill requests, or prescriptions for over-the-counter medications for HSA reimbursement,  require 72 hours notice. Prescriptions for OTC medications for HSA reimbursement cannot be pre- or post-dated and must be picked up at the office.
