Important Announcement re: After Hours Advice Line

As you know medical costs continue to climb and we are currently confronted with the need to change, and pay significantly more for, our after hours advice calls.  We are committed to providing thorough and timely medical advice for your family, including after hours. 

After an extensive search and review process, we are pleased to announce that starting on 2/1/24 we, along with all UBCP-affiliated practices, will be offering after hours advice through a new group, Anytime Pediatrics.  

When our office is closed, including on holidays, you may call Anytime Pediatrics for advice at (623) 663-1707. As before, if your child needs an after-hours appointment, appointments can be made at GoHealth in Oakland. One important change to note is that we will bill your insurance for these calls, and that these calls may be subject to a co-pay, co-insurance, or deductible, if not covered by your insurance. 


Prior to making an after-hour call, the providers at Berkeley Pediatrics recommend that you look up your child’s symptoms on the AAP website symptom checker: 



Child Safety: Essential Tips for Parents to Keep Their Kids Safe and Healthy

Raising children is no small feat. Parenting isn’t easy and parents need all the help that they can get. When it comes to taking care of your child, you probably want many easy tips to keep them healthy and safe. There are some easy habits that you can integrate into your child’s life to make sure that they’re making the best decisions and that they’re doing your part to keep your child safe and as healthy as they can be.

Keeping Your Child Safe

Safety can come in many forms. This could be keeping your child safe from dangers or keeping them safe from illnesses and diseases. Sometimes these go hand in hand and it’s important you understand the basic essentials for keeping your child protected, even when you aren’t around.

It’s important to teach your child how to self-regulate. This can help in many situations and help them to make smart choices. You can teach your child to take calming breaths when they’re in a strange situation where they might feel anxious. This can also help them understand how to regulate their emotions and avoid dangerous situations.

You should be encouraging your child to try new foods and make sure that they’re getting all the nutrients they need each day. The best way to do this is by showing them an example. You can try new foods with them and show them that there isn’t anything that they need to worry about. This can help your child stay curious about making healthy choices.

A crucial step to ensuring your child stays healthy is by encouraging them to stay active. You can help them find an activity or a hobby that they love that keeps them moving around. Depending on their activities, you should also be sure to get your child the essential safety equipment to protect them from injuries.
