Your child will be seen by your pediatrician or nurse practitioner at the following ages:
- For newborns: 48 hours after discharge (the physician will discuss with you before your baby is discharged from the nursery).
- 2 weeks, 1, 2, 4, 6, & 9 months
- 1 year old, 15 & 18 months
- 2 years old
- At age 3 and after: annual through age 18 years
If one of our pediatricians saw you and your newborn in the hospital after delivery, one of our nurses will contact you regarding scheduling your first newborn appointment. If you did not meet one of our physicians in the hospital please call our office when you are discharged to schedule the first visit.
At that first appointment, we will ask you to arrive early so that you can provide information about your baby and your family’s health history. Before leaving our office, please see one of our schedulers to schedule your subsequent appointments. We do charge a fee for appointments not cancelled 24 business hours prior to the appointment.
To register an older child, please speak with one of our schedulers who will send an informational packet and registration form to you. Send the completed information back to us with a copy of your child’s insurance card. Also forward a copy of your child’s previous medical records. This information must be received prior to scheduling an appointment.
