New Patients

There are three ways to become a new patient:

1. Expecting your first child and want to choose an ABCD Pediatrics pediatrician?

  • Verify that we are in network with your insurance plan.

  • You will be assigned to the hospital’s on-call pediatrician during your hospital stay.
  • Select a doctor and make sure that your selection is listed on your hospital pre-registration paperwork. Depending on which of our locations you wish to be seen in, choose a doctor who sees patients there. This is not a permanent choice. You can change your mind anytime after you have been in and seen a few of us.
  • Once discharged, contact our office and follow the prompts to new patient: newborn.
  • Your ABCD registration paperwork will be completed at your first office visit.
  • Expecting a baby boy and considering a circumcision? After the birth, ask the hospital to order the circumcision and a doctor will perform this procedure, usually before being discharged from the hospital.

2. New to the area or transferring from another pediatrician’s office?

  • Verify that we are in network with your insurance plan.
  • Please call our office and follow the prompts for new patients.
  • Obtain medical records from your previous pediatrician. Contact them for a release form (a signed release will be required) and understand that there may be a charge for the service. Try to have at least an immunization record in hand or sent to us before your first visit with us.
  • Please note: Unfortunately we do not have the ability to see unregistered new patients on a same-day-sick basis.

Have children who are already patients here and expecting another child?

  • Any sibling of an established patient is automatically considered a patient at ABCD Pediatrics.
  • Medicaid and CHIP patients: Our practice is currently accepting new MK and CHIP patients. We are not contracted with Superior Healthplan.
