Do you have a pediatrician? If so, I would just call the office and talk with the doctor or nurse (I would avoid the MA if possible) and explain that you are having a baby and would like to have them perform all of the newborn exams/screenings. Ask them their procedure for scheduling this type of appointment.

If you don't have a pediatrician, I would ask friends for recommendations and see if you can find a couple who are on your insurance, have openings for new patients and are recommended by people you know and trust. Then, I would call the offices and set up a meet and greet and see if you can find one who you believe would fit your needs.
