Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life. Nothing is more rewarding than the privilege of caring for this new life and providing an environment in which both you and your child will thrive and develop. Choosing the pediatrician that can best care for your child is an important decision. At Summit Medical Group Madison Avenue Pediatrics, we share your joy and enthusiasm and look forward to the opportunity in partnering with you on the exciting journey of raising a child.
Please feel free to call our office if you have additional questions about us. Or, if you prefer, call today to schedule a prenatal, "get acquainted" meeting.
When your baby is born at an affiliated hospital, simply tell your obstetrician and the hospital staff that you have chosen Summit Medical Group Madison Avenue Pediatrics as your child's pediatrician. Our office will be notified of your baby's birth by the hospital staff. Dr. Rabinowitz or Dr. Rodriguez-Zierer will visit you and your baby each day of your hospital stay. On the morning of discharge, the doctor will provide you with the necessary instructions for newborn care. Upon discharge, please contact our office about scheduling your baby's first visit to our office. This should occur between 48 to 72 hours after hospital discharge.
If your baby is born in a hospital other than Holy Name Medical Center or Hackensack University Medical Center, please plan your first office visit within 48 hours after the baby's discharge.
