Getting Acquainted

Please feel free to call our office if you have additional questions about us. Or, if you prefer, call (860) 744-2244 today to schedule a prenatal meet-and-greet.

Upon Arrival

We recommend that all newborns should be seen within 24-48 hours of discharge from the hospital.

If your baby is born at Johnson Memorial Hospital, simply tell them you would like to see Bear Pond Family Medicine & Pediatrics and they will call us to set up your first appointment. If not, please call us upon discharge to set up your newborn's appointment.

First Visit

You can print off new patient forms before your appointment, if you would like. Bring a copy of the insurance card the child will be put on and a copy of your photo ID.

Parent Enrichment Classes

At Bear Pond Family Medicine & Pediatrics, we understand the challenges faced with being a parent. That's why we offer parenting support classes for parents of newborn/toddler age and for parents having teenagers. Each class will discuss an array of topics specific to age-related issues, including developmental milestones, nutritional and physical activity guidance, recognizing discerning behaviors, and developing and maintaining positive communication with their children.

Please contact Bear Pond Family Medicine & Pediatrics for current class schedule.
