Expecting? We're Here to Help.
Having a baby is one of the most exciting experiences in your life. The Los Gatos Pediatrics team is anxious to make your early parenting experience, as well as the two decades that follow, a positive and rewarding journey filled with joy and good health. We look forward to many years of providing excellent care and support to your family.
Prenatal Pediatric Visit
We encourage parents to schedule a prenatal visit, preferably in your last few months of pregnancy, to meet us and discuss any questions or concerns you have about your soon-to-arrive family member.
Scheduling Your First Exam
It is not necessary to register with our office before you deliver. If you give birth at Good Samaritan Hospital, just inform the staff when you arrive at the hospital. They will notify our office when your baby is born and we will examine your newborn within 24 hours.
If you deliver your baby at another medical facility, their staff pediatricians will examine your newborn. After you are discharged, call our office to make an appointment. We like to see new patients in their first few days of life so we can get to know them.
