For Expecting Parents

If you are choosing a pediatrician for the first time, we recommend you begin the process to select a pediatrician in your third trimester. To make sure you’ve found the right doctor, don’t hesitate to ask a potential pediatrician as many questions as you need to feel comfortable.

After having your baby, we will help you schedule your baby’s first well-check visit. This appointment should take place within one to three days after going home from the hospital.

Well-Baby Visits

Regular checkups are important to monitor your child’s growth and development and can help your doctor identify any problems early on. At a well-child visit, your pediatrician will address all health care and developmental questions and concerns you may have about your child. Regular well-child visits are scheduled at:

  • 1 month
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 12 months
  • 15 months
  • 18 months
  • 24 months
  • 3 years
  • Annually after 3 year

Some families may also choose to see a family medicine provider for their child’s care
