Here are a few questions you may wish to ask during the Meet and Greet interview.
How soon after birth will my baby be seen?
Most hospitals ask for the name of your pediatrician before you deliver. That way, if there are complications during your pregnancy or delivery, your baby can be examined by their pediatrician at birth, otherwise your baby’s first examination will take place by one of our doctors within the first 24 hours after birth. Our doctors see babies at North Austin Medical Center. If you deliver at another hospital, we ask that you call our office to schedule a follow up a day or 2 after you and your new baby are discharged from the hospital.
Do I need to make an appointment if I have questions?
Please, call us anytime! Our qualified Triage Team is available Monday – Friday, 8am-5pm to answer your questions. We also have helpful resources here, so please feel free to look around. After hours, phone calls are answered by our call center, with our on-call physician always available to answer urgent questions.
Who covers, if my doctor is not available?
Our Doctors will always try to be available to see patients. Should the schedule be full or a time slot not available that meets your need, our Nurse Practitioners are ready to help.
What is the checkup and immunization schedule?
We follow the guidelines established by The American Academy of Pediatrics. They recommend checkups at 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 24, and 30 months. Checkups should be scheduled annually after that. Check your insurance to confirm which well visits are covered.
