A pleasant first visit to the pediatrician is crucial to put your child at ease during future visits. During your first appointment, our doctors will check on the overall well-being of your child. We will explain everything in detail and answer any questions you might have. Before choosing a pediatrician, we recommend you call and verify that the doctor is accepting new patients. It’s also recommended to call your insurance company to verify that the physician is in your network.
After you’re discharged from the hospital, call our office to make a two-week appointment with the pediatrician you have chosen. Your baby’s first appointment is dependent on a few things. If you are a first-time mother and/or you are breastfeeding, your doctor may recommend a visit within the first couple of days after you’re released from the hospital. Upon hospital discharge, you and your doctor can decide when to schedule your child’s first office visit.
