Pediatric Partners allows prospective families to meet our physicians and see our office if they would like to schedule an appointment. Parents can see our office and learn about our practice at this visit. Alternatively, if you would like to simply talk with us about our practice, we would be happy to speak with you - simply call our office and one of us would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

When will we be seen at the hospital?
We see babies at Menorah Medical Center, Overland Park Regional Medical Center, Shawnee Mission Medical Center, and St. Luke's South Hospital. If you choose our office, be sure to let the hospital know who your pediatrician will be. The hospitals at which we are on staff call us after the baby is delivered.
One of the physicians will round daily in the hospital to check on your baby, see how feeding is going, and treat most problems that arise. Most babies are in the hospital 2-3 days and we see them on daily rounds to evaluate how they are feeding, how much weight loss they have, perform a physical exam, and discuss parental concerns.
What if we are not delivering at one of the hospitals you go to?
If you will be delivering at a hospital at which we do not have staff privileges, we can help to suggest a pediatrician to take care of your baby until discharge.
Hospitals at which our physicians are on staff are Menorah Medical Center Overland Park Regional Medical Center Shawnee Mission Medical Center St. Luke's South Hospital.
What if my baby is premature or sick?
We occasionally care for babies in the Newborn Intensive Care Nursery (NICU) if they are there for a short time and for minor issues. We have a relationship with the Neonatologists (specialists in sick and premature newborn care) at each of the hospitals so that they help care for the infants who are requiring more specialized care.
When do I bring my baby in for the first visit?
We do our initial in-office appointment 1-3 days after discharge from the hospital in most instances. This will be discussed on your discharge date from the hospital.
