The First Appointment at PA

You newborn’s first appointment at Pediatric Associates will be 2-3 days after being discharged, unless directed otherwise by the physician caring for your baby in the hospital. This first visit will be an opportunity to check your baby’s weight, perform a full examination, and answer your questions as a new family.

From that first visit, your doctor will schedule the next well child visit to continue discussing vaccinations, development, nutrition, and other infant health needs.

For those patients who were not born at St. Luke’s on the Plaza or St. Luke’s East, your first appointment will be our first chance to meet your baby. Please remember to bring any paperwork provided to you from your delivery hospital so we may review it together.
