Newborn Appointments 

We are accepting newborn babies for appointments at TLC Pediatrics, PLLC.  When your baby is born, please call us at 501-327-2444 before your baby is discharged.  We will usually schedule the first newborn appointment at our clinic 2 – 4 days after discharge.  Occasionally, follow-up may be needed the next day after discharge to check for jaundice. When you are given an appointment while inpatient, give us a call the same day to confirm the appointment and to be given more information. If you are unable to call us during our regular business hours (M-F, 8am – 5pm), please call us shortly after 8am on the next day the clinic is open.  Congratulations, and we look forward to seeing you!

Arkansas has its first presumptive case of coronavirus. If you have traveled out of the state or country in the last 2 weeks or you feel like you have been exposed to the coronavirus please let us know prior to entering the clinic. Our staff will be asking you these same questions when scheduling/confirming appointments and upon check in.

 

Please note: We are unable to test for this virus, as we do not have tests available at our clinic.

 

In addition to the CDC’s website (cdc.gov) here are some local resources  to reference regarding the coronavirus.
