An ideal opportunity for you to schedule time to meet Dr. Bergman and determine if The Pediatric Place would be the right fit for your family; please review and complete the Prenatal Consultation Form and bring to your prenatal office visit. We prefer to schedule these visits at the end of the day. There is no charge for your prenatal visit.
If you do select Dr. Bergman as your pediatrician, he may be able to visit your home for your newborn’s first exam if you live nearby the office. This exam is usually scheduled 2-4 days after leaving the hospital. Your insurance may apply this visit to your deductible if they do not cover it.
Notify your insurance carrier of your baby’s arrival and that you have selected Dr. Bergman as your child’s PCP (primary care physician) to ensure coverage for health care costs. Confirm we are in-network provider and that the eligible date begins on your baby’s date of birth. Some policies will not cover the expenses for your baby unless notified within 30 days of birth. If we ask you to pay for newborn visit(s) because of eligibility issues, we will refund you promptly after the insurance reimburses us for the visit(s).
