Prenatal Visits

Prenatal visits can be done any afternoon at 1:15 pm with the physician of your choice. When your baby is born the doctor who is on call for the specific hospital will see your child that day. When you arrive at the hospital, the staff will ask which pediatrician you chose and you can state “Children’s Medical Center”. We are affiliated with Memorial Hospitals and round at Memorial West, Miramar and Regional. Once you state the practice name the hospital will notify the physician on call and your baby will be seen within the first 24 hours of life. Once your baby is discharged call the office to schedule an appointment within 1-2 days after discharge. Once your baby is delivered, we can register them on our electronic system. You are not required to see the physician that discharged you.

To schedule the first appointment, you can call any location, press 2 for the appointment line and register the baby and schedule the first appointment. You can see any physician or nurse practitioner of your choosing. Children’s Medical Center is a group practice we recommend getting familiar with a couple different providers so we can provide continuity of care. You can always request a specific provider for your well and checkups, if you prefer.

We have three office locations. Should your preferred provider, be in any one of the three locations, you have the ability to make your appointment in that office. You also, have the option to see another one of our other providers, should you prefer to stay within a certain office. The choice is yours. We also suggest you sign up for the portal, so you have access to your child’s chart.

We participate with most insurances, please ensure that the baby is added to the insurance within the first 30 days. If they are not added, you will be responsible to pay out of pocket. Please note if you have a Medicaid plan or HMO plan, make sure one of our Doctors is selected as the PCP (Primary Care Physician). If you have any questions, please call the office before your appointment to ensure the process runs smoothly once you arrive.
