All the preparation in the world can suddenly seem like it’s not enough when you have a new baby in your home. Your role as new parent can be both exciting and daunting. GetzWell Pediatrics understands the challenges you face and the difficulty you may have getting into the office. That’s why we offer San Francisco parents newborn house calls within 2-3 days of your child’s birth.
Newborn House Calls
In order to help your family ease into its new rhythms, GetzWell Pediatrics provides newborn house calls that allow our board-certified pediatricians to spend unhurried time (usually 75 minutes) to:
- Complete a thorough medical history and exam
- Assist with breastfeeding and nutritional tips
- Answer ALL of your questions
- Begin the education process that is at the heart of our integrative medicine approach
All while you remain in the comfort of your home. We want to give you time to adjust and settle into parenthood without the added stress of coming into our office.
GetzWell Pediatrics accommodates same-day appointments for urgent and sick visits. Should your infant or child need assistance after hours or on the weekend, your Open Access membership gives you direct telephone access to one of our professionals. For an extra fee, non-members may be accommodated for acute visits based on appointment availability.
Educating Parents About Newborn Health
There is a lot of information about how to best raise your child, and we know this can be overwhelming, especially to new parents. At GetzWell Pediatrics, we spend time discussing the importance of health, nutrition, and development from the time your child is in the womb until he or she is fully grown. We provide parents with information about:
- Proper nutrition for expectant and breastfeeding mothers
- Whole foods and products that will minimize harmful chemicals your child is exposed to
- Botanical and non-pharma remedies for common ailments to prevent overprescribing medication
- Developmental stages and how to nurture the intelligence and creative potential of your child
Whatever your question or concern, we will have a complete picture of your child’s health to pinpoint the approach that is best for their health.
