Newborns

Johns Creek Pediatrics welcomes newborns to our practice. We take great pride in providing care for your newborn from the time you leave the hospital until s/he reaches adulthood! Expectant parents are encouraged to schedule a complimentary prenatal visit with one of our pediatricians. Please see our Expectant Parents page.

We see newborns from all area hospitals, including Northside Atlanta and Forsyth, Emory Johns Creek, Gwinnett Medical Center, Piedmont Hospital and  Northeast GA Medical Center.

The first newborn visit is usually within a few days after your baby has been discharged from the nursery. Please call our office before you leave the hospital to schedule your baby’s first visit with us. When your baby leaves the nursery you will be provided with a packet containing your baby’s important hospital records. Please remember to bring this with you to your first appointment.

At your baby’s first visit we will review your nursery records, monitor your baby’s weight, discuss feeding and newborn care. If your baby has jaundice we will check the bilirubin level in our office. We will provide you with information to help guide you through the upcoming months of parenthood.

Please see our Well Check Visit Handouts page for Newborn information.

We look forward to starting this exciting journey with you!
