NEWBORNS

Please notify the hospital of birth at the time of delivery that Park Pediatrics (Dr. Sith Sadhasivam) will be your babies pediatrician. This is usually done during the registration check-in process. Dr. Sadhasivam or one of his colleagues, Dr. Wong or Dr. Farah will see your baby within twenty-four hours of birth at one of the following hospitals: Holy Cross Silver Spring, Holy Cross Germantown, Washington Adventist, or Shady Grove Hospital. If your baby is born at a hospital not listed above, the pediatric hospitalist at the hospital will examine your baby. We recommend that you call our office shortly after baby’s birth to set up the first outpatient visit (usually within 48 hours) after hospital discharge. Please bring any paperwork given to you by the pediatrician at the hospital to this first visit. If you have any questions relating to insurance or billing, please contact our billing manager at 301-891-6141.

Babies/Children/Adolescents:

Please call our office to set up your child’s first appointment. We will ask that you notify your child’s health insurance that Park Pediatrics will be the new ‘PCP’ (primary care provider)- effective immediately. Depending on the insurance company, we will guide you on who to select for the new PCP. For example, it may be sufficient to state ‘Park Pediatrics’; however for some insurances you may need to choose a certain pediatrician in the practice such as ‘Dr. Lavanya Sithanandam’ or “Dr. Johanna Kaufman’ specifically. Please bring the following to your child’s first appointment: insurance card, any prior medical/vaccination records (including international records), knowledge of prior ER or hospitalizations, knowledge of family medical history, and any school or outside forms that need to be completed. (Please remember that it may take us up to one week to complete such paper work). If your child is being seen for school issues, please bring any forms from the school such as a copy of the IEP (Individualized education plan), report cards, or other communication with the teacher. Please download and complete our age dependant developmental forms and questionnaires for your child’s check-up and bring them to the appointment.
