Pediatric Meet and Greet

What is ARC Pediatric Meet & Greet?

Preparing for your baby's arrival is an exciting time that can raise questions about the health care your child will receive. An ARC Pediatric Meet & Greet is an excellent opportunity for you to learn about our practice and inquire about an individual doctors' philosophy of caring for infants, children, and teens. We know choosing a doctor to take care of your baby or child and guide you through their growth and development is a very personal decision. Attending a free ARC Pediatric Meet & Greet allows you to make an informed decision, and seeing a familiar face at your first visit with your newborn or child is always a comfort.

ARC Pediatric Meet & Greet Options

ARC Pediatricians are available for personal in-clinic or virtual group ARC Pediatric Meet & Greet visits. It is an excellent opportunity for you to ask pertinent questions about bringing your newborn home and pediatric care at ARC. We encourage the virtual visits because most of our parents find them easier and more convenient. 

Joining a virtual ARC Pediatric Meet & Greet gives you the opportunity to hear about our practice with other parents. We review our office operations and what we do at ARC to make health care easy, like 24/7 phone nurses, 24/7 online scheduling, and evening and weekend availability for sick visits and well-child checks. You then join a specific clinic breakout group where you can meet the pediatricians at the clinic closest to you. You can inquire about the doctors’ philosophy of caring for infants, children, and teens and then choose the best pediatric fit for your family. 

ARC Pediatric Meet & Greet is a free service provided by ARC for new and expecting parents as well as parents looking for a new pediatrician for their older child. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Additional Information

Locations where ARC Pediatricians provide the newborn examination

Families that deliver their baby at other area hospitals than those listed above will have a non-ARC provider see their baby while in the hospital. They can then schedule their baby’s first visit with their ARC Pediatrician at their first visit out of the hospital. Families that deliver their baby at a birthing center or at home should talk with their chosen pediatrician about when they should be seen for their baby’s first visit.

Lactation Services

If you choose to breastfeed, your ARC pediatrician and care team can provide advice and recommendations. We also partner with The Breastfeeding Success Company (BFS) to support you with specialized educational materials, classes, and visits with a lactation consultant if necessary. BFS is a local group of board-certified lactation consultants, NICU registered dietitians, and childbirth educators. Your pediatrician can refer you to the services you need.
