Does Nebraska Home Pediatrics & Parents offer well visits with immunizations at home?

We offer the first two newborn well visits at the home. These visits happen about 1-2 days after discharging from the hospital and at two weeks of life. Parents have a lot going on when baby comes home, whether it is the first baby or the fifth baby. Traveling to the clinic for a newborn visit won’t be an added stress to the already busy time of your life.

All other well visits and immunizations are completed at the office location due to insurance policy. The biggest difference between Nebraska Home Pediatrics & Parents and other pediatric clinics is that your well child will not be sitting in a waiting room full of sick children.
