Our Partnership with You

At Meadows Health Pediatrics, our goal is to help you live the healthiest life possible. We think of our relationship with you as a partnership. In an effort to make your life easier, here is some useful information to help serve you better.

Choosing a Pediatrician

Choosing a pediatrician is one of many decisions you’ll be making along the way to becoming a new or expecting parent. When selecting a practice, you’ll want to consider your baby’s needs, your schedule or lifestyle and your personal feelings about communication. For additional advice and information click here.

Billing and Insurance

Our offices accept most insurance plans. We are happy to discuss billing and insurance in a pre-appointment phone call.

Consultations can be provided in both English and Spanish.

Preparing for Your Newborn’s First Appointment

If you are expecting and have secured one of our pediatricians as your doctor, call the office and let them know your due date. The hospital will let your pediatrician know when your baby is born. 

You should expect a visit from your doctor either that day or the next, depending on what time your baby arrives. During this visit, your pediatrician will want to give your baby a complete exam in the hospital nursery.

Newborn Follow-Up Visits

You should schedule a follow-up appointment for 48-72 hours after coming home from the hospital. At this time, your doctor will conduct another exam, checking your baby’s health. You may want to prepare a list of any questions you may have. And remember, it’s ok to have lots of questions — especially for first-time parents!
