Having a baby is one of the most exciting times of your life. Nothing is more rewarding than the privilege of caring for this new life and providing an environment in which both you and your child will thrive and develop, happy and healthy. Choosing the pediatricians that can best care for your child from infancy through the teen years, is an important decision. At Child Health Associates, we'd like to make that decision easier. We've been caring for the children of the suburban Detroit area since 1975, and enjoy a highly regarded area wide reputation. All of our experienced pediatric nurses love helping parents and are available 6 days a week. Our doctors are all highly trained, medical doctors (M.D.'s), board certified in pediatrics and fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Most of us are parents ourselves so we understand exactly what it's like being a parent. You'll find all of our doctors not only highly knowledgeable, but patient and kind, easy to talk to and enthusiastic about partnering with you on the exciting journey of raising a child.
Please feel free to navigate our website, learn about our practice and the doctors that make up Child Health Associates. We welcome your calls to either office to ask any questions you may have. We invite expectant parents to visit our offices for a "Prenatal Tour", where you'll be able to see our offices in action and meet one of our doctors.
Your baby will be examined by a pediatrician in the hospital. Make sure he/she has a normal exam, and plan a visit with our office 2 days after discharge home. To expedite your first appointment, please arrive a few minutes early to complete registration forms so that we have all the necessary information to treat your child. You may also download and print the forms from this website, fill them out ahead of time, and bring them with you to the first appointment.
You must call your employer's benefits department and/or your insurance carrier and notify them of the birth of your child. No child is automatically added to an insurance policy. It is your responsibility alone to do this and delay will lead to rejected insurance claims and unexpected medical bills. The ultimate responsibility for payment of services rests with you, not your insurance company. You should closely review your insurance policy to understand your benefits and your responsibilities.
