We do not require you to pre-register with our office for newborn care. Simply notify the labor and delivery staff when you arrive at the hospital that you would like our doctors to see the newborn and we will be happy to check the baby after the birth.

If your baby is born at another local hospital but you are following up in our office, please ask the attending doctor to provide you with birth records for the initial visit.
We look forward to serving you and helping you in one of life’s most rewarding challenges: raising happy and healthy children.
