If you are an expectant parent we would love to meet with you. We encourage families to visit our practice. We can schedule a tour of the office, meet each providers and the staff, and to ask any questions. 

Upon arrival we visit newborns at Bayfront Baby Place,simply inform your obstetrician and the hospital staff that you have chosen our office to be your child's primary care doctor. Our office will be notified of your baby's birth, and one of our providers will check your newborn each day in the hospital until discharged home. 

If your baby is born at a different hospital, the attending pediatrician affiliated with that facility will care for your baby while in the hospital.  

We are happy to see babies born at other facilities, including birthing centers.

Upon discharge, call our office to schedule a newborn visit.

Your baby's first visit with us should be scheduled 3-5 day after discharge from the hospital, again at 2 weeks of age, 1 month of age, and then in accordance with the vaccine schedule listed below. Once your child is 3 years of age, wellness visits are scheduled annually.
