Having a baby is one of life’s most exciting events but can also feel like one of the scariest. We know those little ones don’t come with a manual, which is why we’re here to help you through all the changes life has in store.

Lakeside Pediatrics is ready to help keep your baby healthy and thriving from birth into young adulthood, and we’ll be there to support you every step of the way. Along with parents, grandparents, and teachers, your pediatrician is an integral part of your child’s team in helping them grow. We treat our patients like our own children!

Services We Offer

Prenatal Visits

Call to set up an appointment to come meet one of our doctors, learn about who we are, and how our team will help you in caring for your baby.

Newborn Visits

We’re ready when you both are! Newborn visits are available 7 days a week. Call 863-688-3550 prior to being discharged and come see us the day after you are discharged from the hospital.

Lactation Support

Often the hardest weeks are the first few weeks while mom and baby learn to work together for a successful breastfeeding experience. We have 3 International Board-Certified Lactation Consults who are also MDs or ARNPs ready to assist with nursing, pumping, or general breastfeeding questions.

Tongue-tie release

Tongue-tie is a condition some babies are born with. It’s when a small line of tissue keeps the baby’s tongue from moving freely, instead keeping their tongue on the floor of their mouth. This can make breastfeeding difficult. To treat tongue-tie, we offer a simple surgical procedure that snips the small line of tissue tethering your baby’s tongue to the floor of their mouth. It’s a quick procedure, and there’s minimal discomfort for your baby.

New Patient’s Guide

 

At least one biological parent must accompany the patient on the first visit in order for our providers to capture the fullest history of the patient’s care to date. Please also bring any medications the child may be taking. Exceptions include adopted patients and those children in the care of the Department of Children and Families (DCF).
