If your newborn was discharged from the hospital with specific follow-up instructions, please call us to schedule your appointment accordingly. Appointments are always available for newborns. If your newborn was discharged without any specific instructions, please schedule an appointment with us 2 to 3 days after leaving the hospital.
For well-child visits, such as immunizations or checkups, please schedule an appointment at least 2 to 4 weeks in advance. We encourage you to schedule your appointment as early as possible, and please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment, in case of any required paperwork needs to be filled out.
As soon as you think you need an appointment, contact us right away. If you are unsure if your child needs to be seen by a doctor, call us early in the day so we can help you figure this out. Same day sick appointments are available but we ask that you please understand if there is a wait.
Babies born early or with complex medical conditions often spend their first days in the neonatal intensive care unit. After they go home—and as they grow—these children may also have medical conditions or developmental challenges that require special attention. Kingsland Pediatrics specializes in Neonatal Follow-ups and provides comprehensive medical and developmental care that addresses the needs of premature and medically complex infants after they leave the hospital. Families will be provided with the resources they may need from infancy into early childhood.
Circumcision is a surgical removal of all or part of the foreskin covering the end of the penis. A decision to circumcise or not to circumcise a newborn son is a personal choice.

At Kingsland Pediatrics, we urge parents to make a decision to immunize and recommend staying up to date with your vaccines.
