Expectant Parents

Congratulations on your upcoming arrival! We look forward to sharing each memorable milestone with you and your child. Please contact one of our offices if you are interested in scheduling a complimentary prenatal consultation. During your visit, you will tour our office and meet with the Provider of your choice. Choosing a Provider for your baby is an important decision! If you would like help selecting a Provider, our staff is pleased to assist you. We recommend reviewing the detailed biographies for each of our Providers to aid your decision. During your prenatal visit, you will also be given helpful information on what’s in store for the first year, including scheduled visits and vaccine information.

The newborn follow-up appointment is an important visit to ensure you and your baby are off to a great start. During this visit, we thoroughly examine your baby, measure weight and length, address feeding issues, and discuss infant safety topics. In general, we like to see your baby within 48 hours after leaving the hospital.

If you deliver your baby at Alamance Regional Medical Center, our physicians will see your baby soon after birth, while you are in the hospital. Penny Hilderbran, R.N., is our dedicated nurse on-site at the hospital. She will meet with you to discuss newborn care and help you schedule your follow-up appointment before you leave the hospital.

If you deliver your baby at Women’s Hospital of Greensboro, Durham Regional Hospital, or UNC Hospital, the hospital physicians at those locations will oversee your baby’s care during your stay. Once you are ready to leave, contact our office to schedule your follow-up appointment. We look forward to meeting your baby!

Well-child Exams and Immunization Schedules

Well-child exams are a vital part of your child’s health maintenance. During these visits, we address growth and diet in order to promote a healthy lifestyle. We also discuss safety topics and perform developmental, as well as hearing and vision screens. We also address parents’ specific concerns that may not be brought up during a sick visit. Up until the age of 5, we have frequently scheduled visits to ensure that your child is growing and developing appropriately. The chart below outlines the standard well-child visit schedule, as well as vaccines and screens performed at each visit. For school-age children, we recommend physicals annually.

Sports, Camp, College Physicals

Older children and teenagers often require a physician to complete a Physical form in order to participate in sports, camp, or enter college. Please bring all necessary forms with you to your visit. We will complete the form and offer you an update copy of your child’s immunization record. If your child has had a Well-child exam or Physical within the past year, we can complete the forms based on the previous visit. The following form is commonly used for High School sports:

ADHD Management

We offer ADHD evaluation and management for your child. Some students are evaluated initially by their school or psychologist through psycho-educational testing. If you have these results available, please provide us with a copy at least 1 week prior to your visit. If you are concerned about ADHD features in your child, you may find the Vanderbilt Parent Assessment and Vanderbilt Teacher Assessment forms helpful. Given the nature of ADHD, we usually do not make this diagnosis in a child younger than school-age.
