What Is a Newborn Exam?
Having a new baby is a fun and exciting time! At Immaculate Heart of Mary Family Health Center, we seek to support the healthy development of infants and provide parents with peace of mind by performing newborn exams. Given to babies who are just a few days old, the purpose of these physical examinations is to evaluate their health and address any medical issues they may have. We will also identify any possible birth defects so we can create a treatment plan if needed. If you are expecting a baby soon or have a newborn infant you want to ensure is healthy, we invite you to reach out to our office in Chandler, AZ to schedule a newborn exam with Dr. Charles Armstrong or Dr. Margaret Hart.
How Does a Newborn Exam Work?
When you arrive at our Chandler, AZ office for a newborn exam, we will ask you about your family health history and go over any concerns you may have about your baby. Then, we will check the infant's vital signs, record their weight, and assess their entire body for any abnormalities or symptoms of disease or illness. A physical exam of a newborn typically involves listening to the sounds of the heart and lungs and looking at the color of the skin, the shape of the head, the inside of the mouth, and all of the facial and body areas. We will also check the reflexes, muscle tone, and range of motion of your child. Screening tests are usually performed to check for hearing loss and visual impairment.
Immaculate Heart of Mary Family Health Center Reviews
They're a great team. They treat you as a human being, not as a number, they do care about your life and that's why I'm giving 5 stars. I love all the staff ❤️ thank you!
Dr. Armstrong and Dr. Hart are very caring and knowledgeable. The staff they have are all amazing. The clinic is very clean and not much of a wait. V.Schitz
Dr Hart was experienced, knowledgeable and thorough. She has a plan with health checkups to monitor any changes in my health status. Easy to book. Easy to contact.
This place does ask for reviews which is why I am doing one, I wouldn’t be doing a review if the service I received was bad. This has been one of the best doctors I’ve visited in a long time. I don’t think they are a specialist by any means but the doctor did really try to help me and I really appreciate that. They did thorough labs and did their best to identify anything wrong with me. Their staff are all very calm and friendly. The practice is very religious forward but they are not a church and do not try to preach their values to you so please don’t let this discourage you. I will highly recommend Dr Armstrong to anyone I know as they are a very caring practice and truly listened to my problems. Not to mention their staff went over and above with referrals and helping me out. Thanks so much to the team at heart of Mary’s.
