Congratulations New Parents!

Preparing for your new baby is a very thrilling time of your life and you want to make sure you’re doing everything that is best for your child. As most new parents do, you probably have many questions. The information in this guide is designed to help you in these early exciting and exhausting weeks while you and your baby are getting acquainted with each other.

While this is general information, each infant and family is unique, and our goal is to work together with you to keep your baby happy and healthy. We are honored that you chose us to be your child’s pediatrician and we want to provide the highest quality pediatric care to you and your child. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns about your baby's health and development. We look forward to seeing you at your next visit.
