And we’re so excited for you!
We would love to meet you in advance of your delivery so you can get to know our practice, philosophy and processes. Please call either office to schedule a Pre-Natal visit with one of our providers at either office.
Some Things to Know before the Big Day!!
- Plan to contact your insurance company as soon as the baby is born. This is very important because there are frequent visits to your pediatrician in the first few months of your baby’s life and you want to ensure your insurance for the baby is effective for those visits.
- Your baby will require periodic well-check visits based on the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended Periodicity Schedule designed to track the development of your child. You can find this schedule under “Medical Information - Growth and Development” section of this website.
- Visit "Medical Information" on our website. The Newborns section has valuable medical information on a variety of topics from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Also visit our Breastfeeding section, if you’re exploring this option.
- Complete what you can of the following forms to bring with you on your baby’s first visit:
- Historical Information
- New Patient Information
- Patient Medical History
- Administrative Policies
- Missed Appointment
- Authorization for treatment
- Finally, since you’re on our website and have some free time (for now!), please browse the website to see how much information we have available for you as your child grows. Our patients love our “Is Your Child Sick” section, where you can search by symptom for reliable information, determine dosages for medications, as well as a symptom checker for you, the caregiver! Don’t search the internet, we have all the information you need!
Your Bundle of Joy Arrives!!
Congratulations!! We can’t wait to meet your baby!
We would like to see your baby in our office 1 week after delivery (but always per hospital discharge directions). Since this is a hectic, sometimes sleep-deprived time, write down your questions as you think of them and then bring to your first few visits so we can discuss. As with any age child, don’t hesitate to call us with any issues or concerns once you’re home with your baby!
