New patient information
All of our providers here at Bridgewater Pediatrics are happily accepting new patients including newborns, children and adolescents. We will continue to follow your child until they turn 21 years of age. We are excited that you have chosen Bridgewater Pediatrics as your child’s medical home. Your comfort and convenience are our priority, and we strive to make every visit to our office a positive experience.
Our New Patient Care Coordinator is Wendy Benson. She can be reached via email with any questions or concerns: Welcome@bwaterpeds.com.
Transferring to our office
Complete a Medical Record Release form and bring to your current pediatrician’s office. Once your records have been received by our office we will call you to let you know we received them. If you have an insurance plan that requires a PCP to be listed, please call your insurance company to change your pediatrician. In order to have your child registered with our practice we must have medical records, immunization records, and your insurance to reflect a primary care provider from our office.
We strongly believe in full immunization for all children in our practice. We do not accept patients who choose not to immunize their children.
Bridgewater Pediatrics follows the immunization guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics(AAP). For information about these vaccines, the diseases they protect against, and our typical vaccination schedule, please visit our immunization page.

What to expect
A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future visits. We want your child to enjoy getting to know their new health care provider and staff, so we work hard to establish this bond during every appointment to our office. During your initial appointment, we will explain everything in detail and answer any questions you may have.
