Parenthood is one of the most exciting events in life, but it may also cause anxiety. As fellow parents, we know you want to be the best parents possible. Choosing a pediatrician for your child is an important decision, as your doctor can help guide you through well-child visits, immunizations, developmental screenings and the questions you are bound to have about the health and well-being of your child. We welcome the opportunity to speak to you before your baby is born and answer any questions you may have about our practice, philosophies and role in your child’s life.
What is Pediatric People’s position regarding vaccines?
The physicians at Pediatric People feel strongly about the benefits of vaccines. For everyone’s safety, we DO NOT accept patients that do not follow or do not plan to follow the immunization schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), including delayed vaccine schedules. There are no exceptions to this policy.
How does the complimentary prenatal consultation work?
During your telephone visit, the physician will explain what happens with your newborn in the hospital, let you know what to expect when you bring your baby home, review well-child visits with you, explain the importance of vaccines and respond to your questions and concerns.
We know you will love Pediatric People because we are passionate about what we do. We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our practice, and growing with your child through the years.
What happens when I deliver at the hospital?
When you are admitted to the hospital, simply list Pediatric People in Frisco, Dr. Audra Linck as your infant’s primary care physician. Contact us when your infant is discharged from the hospital and we will schedule your child’s two-day well-care visit. Please bring your newborn’s discharge report with you to your appointment at Pediatric People.
