From the moment your child is born you want nothing more than to keep them safe and healthy.

We treat every child or teen that comes through our doors like family so that you always feel comfortable and assured that your little one will get the care they deserve. If you’re looking for a pediatrician who provides newborn care, you’ve come to the right place.

What to Expect During Your Visit

We know that nothing is more exciting than welcoming a new baby into the family! However, we also know that this is a time of lots of questions and even concerns for parents. There are so many questions to ask and factors to consider, from bathing and feeding to childproofing and car seats, and the Livania Zavala, MD team is here to make sure that you and your newborn get the care everyone needs.

Your newborn’s first visit with a pediatrician will occur only days after leaving the hospital. Expect the first appointment to be a bit longer than other newborn care checkups, as this is the first time that we get to meet your new addition (so it’s an exciting time for us as well!).

Along with checking vital signs and vision and hearing, we will also perform a thorough physical examination and administer the appropriate immunizations. While we know that no parent wants to think about health problems, especially with a newborn, it does happen. This is another reason these regular newborn care checkups are so incredibly important, even if you think your newborn is fine.
