**Please contact our office PRIOR to downloading forms, at certain times of the year we have to limit the amount of New Patients we can accept. Calling before hand will give you the confidence that we will have room in our schedules to accept your child into our practice**
Whether you are expecting, have a new baby, have had a change of insurance, are new to the area or are searching for a new pediatrician, we would like to welcome you to our practice. We encourage you to review our New Patient Handouts to ensure we will be a good fit for your family.
Whether you are bringing in your newborn for his/her first visit or are transferring, please complete our Registration Packet prior to the visit. Bring all forms plus your drivers’ license and insurance card with you to the first visit. This will help you get through the check in process as quickly as possible.
Congratulation on your new arrival! We will gladly take over the care from babies born at all area hospitals and birthing centers, you do not need to register with our practice before your baby is born.
If your baby is born at Baylor Medical Center at Frisco, please let the nursery staff know when you check in at the hospital that we are your pediatrician. Once the baby is born we will be contacted by the nursery staff and one of our physicians will examine your baby and visit you each day in the hospital to answer any questions and discuss your newborn’s care.
If your baby is born at another hospital, the pediatrician on call will care for you while in hospital. Please call us at discharge to schedule your newborns first visit with Dr Kaplan or Dr Hummel. Our physicians will want to see you in our office 24-48hours after discharge to check your babys weight and address any concerns, including jaundice. Please request a copy of the birthing records to take with you at discharge and bring to your first appointment.
