New to the area or looking for a primary physician? To schedule an appointment or establish care, call or come by our office. If you need to transfer your child's medical records, you can use this form (PDF) or pick up a copy at the office.
“Get to Know You Visits” can be scheduled by calling the office during your last trimester. Notify your OB doctor and the labor and delivery team so our pediatricians can be there to check your newborn.
New parent classes are offered periodically to answer questions and provide guidance on care of our littlest patients.
Breastfeeding Help for New Moms
We promote breastfeeding to improve infant health. Both mothers and babies benefit from breast feeding. Breast milk contains antibodies that protect infants from bacteria and viruses. Breastfed children have fewer ear, respiratory and urinary tract infections.
We have two lactation specialists on staff to help answer questions and work through difficulties.
