First Visit

Whether this is your first visit as a new parent or you are new to the area, there are several things we will need in order to make your first appointment with us a pleasant experience. You should call our office at the above number according to your baby’s discharge instructions to schedule your baby’s first appointment. Please inform the receptionist this is your child’s first appointment and the give the discharge instructions from the physician to her. When you come to the office, please bring the following information:

  • Insurance card (if the card is not available, yet, please inform the receptionist the name of the pending insurance)
  • Discharge information provided by Watauga Medical Center

It is helpful if you arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to allow the nurse to get your child ready for his/her visit. Children can be very unpredictable which complicates our schedule on a daily basis. Please be patient as quite often there is a wait.

We look forward to serving your family for years to come!
