Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life. Nothing is more rewarding than the privilege of caring for this new life and providing an environment in which both you and your child will thrive and develop. Choosing the pediatrician that can best care for your child is an important decision. At Pediatric & Adult Medicine, Inc, we share your joy and enthusiasm and look forward to the opportunity in partnering with you on the exciting journey of raising a child.
What is a Pediatrician?
A pediatrician is a physician whose specific specialty is caring for children from birth to 18 years of age. Pediatricians address acute and chronic illnesses, learning disabilities, behavioral issues and the growth and development of children. Our goal is to help ensure that children grow into mentally and physical healthy, productive and happy adults.
Please feel free to call our office if you have additional questions about us. Or, if you prefer, call today to schedule a prenatal, “get acquainted” meeting. We offer an “open house” once a month. This would be a “group visit” with other expectant parents and several of our physicians. (no charge) You may also schedule a one on one visit with a physician of your choice. (fee applies)
When your baby is born at an affiliated hospital, simply tell your obstetrician and the hospital staff that you have chosen Pediatric & Adult Medicine, Inc. as your child’s pediatrician. Our office will be notified of your baby’s birth by the hospital staff. If your baby is born at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, one of our physicians will visit your baby in the hospital shortly after their birth. Upon discharge, please contact our office about scheduling your baby’s first visit to our office.
