Prenatal Visits/New Patients

Parents who are expecting a new baby are always welcome to come by and see our office and speak with our staff before their baby is born. Parents who are looking for a new pediatrician because of an insurance change or relocation are also welcome to come in and learn more about our office before making the first appointment for their child. Our doctors are available for prenatal visits by appointment.

Newborn Care in Hospital

We see newborn babies in the El Camino Hospital Newborn Nursery every morning. You are welcome to call and register with us before your baby arrives. When you come in to labor and delivery, give your pediatrician’s name to the hospital staff so they can notify our office once your child is born.

If your child is in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), please notify us so that we can visit you and be familiar with your child’s condition before his/her first visit in the office.

If you would like one of us to be your baby’s pediatrician, but are delivering at a hospital other than El Camino Hospital, your obstetrician can recommend another pediatrician to see your baby while in the hospital. Please call us when your baby is discharged so that we can schedule your first office visit.

We will circumcise your newborn son at your request before he is discharged from the nursery. We do not do circumcisions in our office. If you are not sure whether to have your son circumcised, we will be happy to discuss the issues with you. To read about the procedure's risks and benefits, please use the following links:
