After the baby is born, he/she immediately becomes the patient of the Pediatrician whom you have selected. Therefore, it is important to decide in advance of the delivery who this will be. We recommend that you choose your Pediatrician during the final 2 months of the pregnancy.
We can provide a list of some local Pediatricians upon request. Some patients will have to choose doctors from amongst those who are on their insurance plan. If the Pediatrician is not located here in Pasadena, find out if he/she has admitting privileges at Huntington Hospital. If the doctor does not have admitting privileges, we can select a Pediatrician to be responsible for the baby from birth, until the baby is discharged home.
