First off...


You are soon to be (or may already be) new parents, so thank you for choosing us as your child's pediatrician. We are here to assist you with all of your pediatric needs. Your visits here will be informative, pleasant, and rewarding.
"Pediatrics" may be in our name, but we're here for the whole family!

Got a question? Unsure about something? Give us call to make an appointment for a courtesy prenatal consultation with one of our physicians.

Give us a Call


Dr. Bustamante only has privileges at Mercy Southwest Hospital

If your child is born at another hospital, the pediatrician on call will do any exams needed and will discharge the baby. Please make sure to get any and all discharge paperwork before visiting us. This way, we can be better informed and help you with any questions you may have.

Mercy Southwest Hospital

Newborn Services

We offer Circumcisions (up to 3 weeks old) and Tongue Clipping.

Ask our physicians if you are interested in more information about these procedures.

First Newborn Visit

The hospital will inform you when you need to schedule your first check up with the doctor. Keep in mind that it is usually between 3-5 days after birth, unless told otherwise.


  • Remember to bring your insurance card, vaccine card, and any discharge paper work from the hospital.

  • Check with your insurance or human resource department to check on your newborn coverage.

Feel free to explore our LEARN page for more educational videos on newborns and breastfeeding.

There's nothing more important than your child's health, and a strong immune system starts at an early age. We recommend getting vaccinations and booster shots on time, always, but keeping up with your child's vaccinations can be a headache.

Our helpful VACCINES page shows just what your baby needs at every age.
