Families who are expecting newborn infants are invited to visit one of our office locations to help them decide whether or not to choose our practice. Whenever possible this visit will be scheduled at the end of the day with one of the physicians.
If you elect to choose our practice please inform your obstetrician. We currently do not examine newborns in the hospital, but have agreements with various neonatologists and pediatricians at each of the major hospitals. They will examine your newborn in the hospital.
Once a newborn is discharged to go home, we generally like to see them for a first visit in the office at about five to seven days of age. If problems such as fever or jaundice arise after discharge they will be seen immediately.
Either in the hospital, or on the first visit to the office, all families will be given a newborn care manual which contains office policy and procedure information.
Children's Medical Group participates in a wide variety of private medical insurance plans and has limited participation in the state Medicaid program. A listing of those plans is provided in this web site. Please understand that this list is subject to change.
If you are coming to one of our offices for the first time with your newborn, please sign in at the reception desk. Please allow 30 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time to fill out the initial paperwork. Once that process is completed, a nurse will bring your family back to an exam room as soon as possible and get you prepared for the doctor's examination. We do provide a separate newborn waiting room.
