Newborns and Expectant Moms

Choosing the right pediatrician for your new baby is a very important and personal decision.

If you are expecting a baby, we invite you to schedule a free “Meet the Doctor” appointment. This optional first visit allows expectant parents to meet with our doctor, ask any questions they may have, and take a tour of our office.

We have taken special care to develop the services new parents need in caring for their newborn. 

Safari Pediatrics is dedicated to providing excellent clinical care and outstanding customer service. We strive to foster a caring partnership with families. Our goal is to provide a medical home to our patients, where families can expect compassionate and comprehensive pediatric care, convenient access to quality after-hours advice, and professional coordination of care between community specialists and services. We focus on the health and well-being of the whole child and believe in the importance of continuity of care (including regular well care and immunizations). Our comprehensive services are provided to address a wide range of patients’ needs, including preventative medicine, acute and chronic illnesses, disabilities, developmental and behavioral issues, multiple births and prematurity.

Your First Visit

Please contact our office during business hours to schedule your newborn’s first visit. We prefer to see your baby 2-4 days after being discharged. During this visit we will evaluate your newborn’s feeding, weight, or any possible issues.

For your visit, please bring your insurance card, child’s shot record, any discharge paperwork, and arrive 30 minutes early to complete the necessary patient information forms. To ensure insurance coverage for your new baby, it is important to add your newborn to your insurance plan within 30 days of birth and choose our physician as your baby’s primary care physician (PCP) if a PCP is required. Check with your insurance company for details on how to add your child to your policy.
