Yes, we are accepting Newborns!
If you are expecting and looking for a pediatrician, we invite you to consider Genesis Pediatrics.
Having a baby is one of the most rewarding times of your life. At Genesis Pediatrics, we are dedicated to helping you care for your child from birth to young adulthood.
Before Your Baby is Born
We encourage a prenatal visit to our office by expectant parents. This visit allows you to:
- Find out where we are
- Meet our staff
- Have any of your baby care questions answered
- Inform us of any health problems that run in the family that might affect your baby
Please call our office at (585) 426-4100 to get more information and to schedule a prenatal visit.
Your baby will be seen by the Pediatrician on call at the hospital you will be delivering at.. Discharge instructions will be given at the hospital. All newborns are seen in the first 7-10 days of life, and many at 2-3 days of age. We ask all new mothers to call our office at (585) 426-4100 from the hospital 1-2 days after the baby’s birth (or at the latest the day after discharge) to establish contact and help determine the timing for the first visit.
Feeding your Baby
We strongly encourage all mothers to consider breastfeeding their baby. Breastfeeding is the healthiest nutrition for babies. Please refer to our For Parents link for more information on breastfeeding. Should this not be your choice, however, we will do all we can to support you and find the right formula for your baby.
Vaccination is probably the most important thing that we do as pediatricians, both for the health of your child and for the health of the general public. There has been a barrage of bad science and misinformation regarding vaccines in the past decade. We understand that any injection into your child comes with a level of concern and anxiety. However, we strongly recommend that our patients receive all of the currently approved vaccines. We do not recommend skipping any specific vaccine, or following an alternate or "spread out" schedule, as there is no scientific evidence that this is necessary and leaves your child vulnerable to the diseases we vaccinate against. Please refer to our For Parents link for more information on immunizations.
