WeeCare is a specially designed area of Longstreet Clinic Pediatrics intended for newborns and their parents.
There’s always a little bit of fear or worry when it’s time for new parents to take their infant to the doctor for a well baby visit. The thought of taking a baby who appears perfectly healthy into a waiting room full of crying, coughing and sneezing children can be maddening for a new mom or dad.
“What if, by doing what my pediatrician recommended, I expose my baby to a virus and my baby gets sick?”
This is exactly the scenario that our pediatricians at Longstreet Clinic wanted to eliminate when we started the WeeCare office in Gainesville. For well baby visits only, WeeCare offers a small, intimate office setting with four patient exam rooms set up for newborn check-ups at 2 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months and 9 months of age.
Baby-oriented with rocking chairs and nursery decor, WeeCare is open for appointments Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
WeeCare is located on the first floor of Longstreet Clinic’s main Gainesville campus at 725 Jesse Jewell Pkwy. S.E.
