Welcome to our Practice
We consider our patients to be part of our pediatric family and we look forward to caring for your family from birth through young adulthood. In addition to delivering medical care, we believe it is our job to educate parents to help raise a healthy and loving child, and also to educate children to help them develop healthy habits.
Our routine well child appointments begin at 3-5 days of age, which is usually just a few days after discharge from the hospital, and then again at 2 weeks. We follow the schedule of the American Academy of Pediatrics for well child care visits, immunizations, and health maintenance.
For children who are sick, we have a walk-in clinic everyday, including Saturdays and Sundays, except the major holidays. The doctors, nurse practitioners, and nurses work together to be available for your questions and concerns 24/7.

We welcome your feedback so be sure to help us understand your family’s needs and expectations.
Our physicians are on staff at Northwestern Memorial’s Prentice Women’s Hospital and Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital.
Our complimentary prenatal visits are a two-way street. They benefit us because we get to know your family and they benefit you because you get to know us. During the prenatal visit, we will ask questions about your family and your pregnancy and help you understand what you should be thinking about and deciding about before and during your stay at the hospital when you deliver your baby. It is helpful to bring a list of questions so we can answer your questions also.
What to Expect/What to Bring:
To help make our first visit as efficient and informative as it can be, please bring with you information about your family medical history, your child’s medical history and your insurance information.
For prenatal families and newborns, if you are delivering at Prentice Woman’s Hospital you can identify one of our doctors on the preregistration form through your obstetrician’s office or on your admitting registration forms when you get to the hospital.
We will see you the morning after your baby is born. We usually round early in the morning and we will examine your baby, answer your questions, and provide you with some reading materials to help launch you on your way to the art of parenting.
If you are delivering elsewhere and choose to follow up with our practice after discharge, call our office to schedule an appointment for your baby to be seen a few days after discharge from the hospital. Please bring a copy of your medical records to the first appointment.
For transferring patients, please bring records including immunizations, prior medical problems and growth charts.
We look forward to meeting you and to help your family maintain optimal health
