Newborns

Having a baby? Congratulations!

We are thankful for the opportunity to care for your newborn. In order to familiarize yourself with our practice, please visit the Are We A Good Fit  section on our website, as well as the policies section.
You may preregister here.

Our physicians do not call on patients while they are in the hospital. Tallahassee Memorial and Capital Regional have pediatric Hospitalists who will care for the baby as an inpatient. You will follow up with one of our physicians 24-48 hours after discharge from the hospital.

To make your first visit more enjoyable, we recommend you download and complete our New Patient Registration Packet prior to your arrival.

We are happy to announce that we have a Lactation Specialist available to mothers interested in breastfeeding. Simply request to speak with the lactionation specialist at any of your visits.

Please refer to the well visits and immunizations sections of our website to familiarize yourself with the appointments/immunization schedules.
