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 within a day or two. If any problems such as feeding problem or jaundice arise after discharge they will be seen immediately. We do have the ability to initiate phototherapy treatment for newborns with jaundice.
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 at the Century Center and Johns Creek offices.
