Did you know your newborn baby needs to visit the doctor during the first week of life? That means you need to have your pediatrician determined before the baby arrives. Ask your mom friends, ask your OB, and do your research to come up with a good list of local baby doctors (you’ll want them in walking distance if possible, so you don’t have to worry about taking a car).
We asked around, and here’s a short list of the pediatricians our families love:
- Battery Park Pediatrics
- West Side Pediatrics
- Premier Pediatrics Brooklyn & Chelsea
- TriBeCa Pediatrics
- Carnegie Hill Pediatrics
We recommend making a consult appointment to each, and then making your decision after that. It’s a process, but you’ll want to have it done before your little bundle arrives.
