We know that choosing a pediatrician for your family is a big decision, and we want to help you every step of the way by putting your child at the center of all we do. We are a group practice, which means all of our offices are linked with medical records, medical providers, and behavioral health providers. We share the same policies and procedures and give consistent care no matter which office you choose to take your children to. Most families like to follow a particular provider and schedule Well Child Visits in advance. We always have same day appointments available for sick kids with one of our providers.

What to Expect at the Hospital: When you pre-register for delivery, the hospital should ask if you have a pediatrician that you want to see your baby. You may choose any of our pediatricians or tell the hospital, Alpine Pediatrics. Our providers rotate their time for hospital rounding, but all of them are amazing! The baby needs their own doctor to examine them each day they are in the hospital to make sure they are doing ok and that there are not any problems. The doctors usually do their rounding in the morning each day, so if you deliver later in the day, the pediatrician may not come to examine the baby until the following day. On average, your baby may be seen 2 times, but it may be more if there are complications or if you stay longer in the hospital. You may schedule your baby’s first appointment in our clinic after you are discharged from the hospital.

Things to Know Before Your First Appointment: Our office follows the immunization guidelines established by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).

Along with the AAP recommended immunization schedule, we follow the recommended schedule for well exams, which includes checkups for newborns within 2-3 days of birth for your first child, 2 weeks for subsequent children, then 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 months and annual visits after the patient turns two years old. This allows us to monitor developmental milestones and offer support and guidance as your child grows and learns.

Don’t forget to call your insurance and add your child to your plan ASAP. If you forget, they might not cover the office visit you schedule.
