A Message for Parents-to-be
From InterMed Pediatrics
Over the next 9 months, you will be cared for by your obstetrician, monitoring all aspects of your health and assuring you the best environment for your baby’s growth and development.
Once your baby is born, we’re sure you will be looking for the best care he/she can get. Our pediatricians at InterMed can provide you with that care. As pediatricians, we solely dedicate our services to the needs of children, from birth through age 18.
We are all board-certified pediatricians. We have three office sites:
- 84 Marginal Way in Portland on Marginal Way
- 259 Main Street in Yarmouth
- 100 Foden Road in South Portland.
We provide our patients with 24-hour coverage, seven days a week, with an on-call pediatrician available to answer emergency calls when the offices are closed.
Our entire staff is committed to providing the highest quality of care to our patients. We have had the honor of having the highest immunization rate in the state, and many of the pediatricians have received awards of excellence from the teaching programs at the hospitals.
We are always working on ways to provide better care for our patients. For instance, we have separate sick and well waiting areas for the kids. We also work with nurse practitioners, RN’s with Masters in Pediatrics, so that we may all spend more time with our patients.
We offer free prenatal visits for first time parents; that is, a visit to meet one of us prior to your baby’s birth so that we can get to know each other, and you can see our office. Usually parents make those appointments between the 6th and 8th months of the pregnancy so that they have a pediatrician picked out prior to the baby coming, especially if it’s early!
Feel free to give us a call and find out more about the office. We look forward to seeing you and wish you the best of luck with your pregnancy.
