I’m having a baby! How do I choose a pediatrician?

First of all… congratulations!

We are always open to new babies in our practice, and are happy to meet you during a prenatal visit at either of our offices. Just call us and set up a visit with any of our pediatricians.

Before you come, we’ll ask a few questions, including your due date, where you plan to deliver, and what type of insurance you have.

We visit and examine newborn babies at Harrisburg Hospital within 24 hours of delivery. The nursery at Harrisburg Hospital contacts our office when the baby is born, so you don’t have to worry about calling us from the hospital.

If you are on bed rest or hospitalized before your delivery, call us and we can arrange a phone call or hospital visit.

We require all of our patients to vaccinate their children according to one of two vaccine schedules, which we can gladly provide upon request. ┬áSee our vaccine policy under “Policies and Forms.” If you are hesitant about vaccinating your child, please discuss this with us. We are committed to keeping all children healthy, and vaccine education is one of our jobs.

We can’t wait to meet you and your new baby!
