Pediatric specialist or family medicine physician? It’s a choice new parents have to make, and we want you to be comfortable with the option you choose. This page is devoted to newborn and well-child checks because many parents don’t realize Virginia Gay family healthcare providers are well trained to provide those services.
Training of family physicians and other providers includes care of newborns and continued care throughout the entire lifespan. Your provider’s understanding of the entire family’s health can help guide medical decisions and counseling. Instead of concentrating on one narrow range of health issues, as specialists do, Virginia Gay Family Medical Clinics monitor the health and well-being of baby, mom, dad, and siblings. For many of our medical professionals, care for the family includes grandparents as well.
Talk with your provider about your options for post-delivery care of baby and family, and make an informed choice that’s right for you.
