Welcome to parenthood! Quakerbridge Pediatrics is here to help you and your newborn baby through your first pediatrician’s visit. At the time of your child’s birth, the hospital or birth center will let our office know if you experienced any medical problems during pregnancy, if there are any suspected health concerns for your baby, or if there are any other potential complications Dr. Milan R. Kapadia should be aware of. Our dedicate staff and physicians are dedicated to helping new parents of all backgrounds formulate a plan for healthy and happy newborn development.
Baby’s First Office Visit
During your first visit to Quakerbridge Pediatrics, the pediatrician will complete a full examination and be able to any questions you may have. You should expect your doctor to:
- Measure the weight, length, and head circumference of your newborn
- Perform a complete newborn physical examination
- Assess your newborn’s vision, hearing, and reflexes
- Answer any questions you may have as a new parent
- Discuss your child health and development schedule
Additionally, if the results of your screening tests performed on your newborn baby at birth are available, we will discuss them in detail with you. During your newborn examination, a Quakerbridge Pediatrics’ pediatrician will help you prepare a permanent medical record for your child that includes vital information regarding growth, immunizations, medications, and illness treatments.
