Choosing a Baby Doctor

A physician will need to examine your baby before you both leave the hospital. That means you should select a Pediatrician or Family Physician who accepts your insurance and meets any requirements that you may have before your baby is born.

Talking with others moms is a great place to start. But be sure you meet the doctor before you make your decision. Just because your friend or relative is pleased with a certain doctor doesn’t mean that you will be. Often, you can schedule an interview visit to meet a doctor. Because some will charge for this visit and some will not, it’s a good idea to ask about the charges first.

St. John Physician Finder resource specialists can also provide you with a wealth of information about our physicians, such as

  • insurance accepted
  • education and background
  • years in practice
  • hospital affiliations
  • board certification
  • specialties
  • office locations and hours

    They can even schedule your first appointment for you.

To reach St. John Physician Finder, call 1-888-440-7325, toll-free, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. EST.
