New Patients

There are two ways that parents are introduced to Forest Hills Pediatric Associates: as a first-time parent or as a parent who would like to have their child’s care transferred to our practice. We offer a custom approach to both and welcome the opportunity to talk about how we can serve you.

First-Time Parents

Thank you for taking the time to visit us—once you click through our website we invite you to meet with Kathy Hickey, our office manager, for a 'Get Acquainted visit'.  Please email Kathy at in order to set up a telephone or 'ZOOM' Get Acquainted visit during the COVID19 outbreak. 

Best Time—30 to 60 Days Before Your Due Date

We recommend you schedule your Get Acquainted Visit a month or two before your due date so all are prepared for your child's first visit. If your Get Acquainted visit will be over the phone or the 'ZOOM' format, please allow about 45 minutes for the visit to ensure enough time for all of your questions to be answered.

How to Schedule a Get Acquainted Visit

Vaccination Policy

Because we care about the health and safety of your child and all of our patients, we follow the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Immunization schedule.  Therefore, if you have chosen to decline vaccines or follow an "alternative" vaccine schedule, we ask that you seek another pediatric practice. 

Transferring to Our Practice

If you are new to our practice but are not first-time parents, please give us a call. We will inform you of our current transfer policy.
