Newborn Care


After the baby is born, the next visit should be no more than 5 days after delivery.  Going home with a new baby is exciting, but it can be scary, too.  Newborns have many needs, like frequent feedings and diaper changes.  Babies can have health issues that are different from older children and adults, like diaper rash and cradle cap.  Your baby will go through many changes during the first year of life.  You may feel uneasy at first.  Ask your health care provider for help if you need it.

Prenatal Consults


Contact Kim Evans, Office Manager, to schedule a tour, meeting or "meet and greet" with staff. Call 270.759.9223 for prenatal consults.


Well-Child Care Exams


Murray PediatricsWe provide routine check ups as well as school, sports, and camp physicals and immunizations.  

Routine well child check ups are recommended at the following ages:  2 weeks, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 24 months; 3 years and yearly thereafter.  We look forward to watching your child grow!

The Benefits of Well-Child Visits:

Prevention. Your child gets scheduled immunizations to prevent illness. You also can ask your pediatrician about nutrition and safety in the home and at school.

Team approach. Regular visits create strong, trustworthy relationships among pediatrician, parent and child. The AAP recommends well-child visits as a way for pediatricians and parents to serve the needs of children. This team approach helps develop optimal physical, mental and social health of a child.  (Source: healthychildren.org)
