New Mom & Dad Classes
Our monthly new mom and dad classes are fun and informative for new parents.
Dr. Edwards will cover what will happen in the hospital after your baby is born, and the first few weeks of life at home with
your newborn. It's a great way to meet our practice as well! Our upcoming dates are January 24th, February 28th,
March 21st, April 25th, May 30th, and June 20th. Call today to sign up, since space is limited to 10 couples per class

New Weekend Hours for 2017
We are excited to announce that, starting in January 2017, The Pediatric Center
will be open every Saturday for our patients! We will have walk-in hours from 9 AM to 11 AM on Saturday mornings
to cover our patients' urgent problems, with one of our four doctors available on a first come/first serve basis during that
time. We will no longer be sharing call with other offices in Wilmington as we have in the past. From now on,
one of your doctors will always be on-call each night of the week, 7 days a week, to answer questions the on-call nurse may
have for our patients. And that means that the on-call nurses, via our doctors, will can now have access to your
child's eClinicalWorks electronic chart 24/7! After hours or when the office is closed, we will now direct our
patients for non-emergent care to Wilmington's MedAc Urgent Care, who can contact our on-call physician if needed, and send
their notes abour your child's visit to our office the next day. We are confident that our extended coverage will provide
even better care for our patients in 2017!
