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: 



COVID vaccines for Children

Updated 12/13/2021:

We are scheduling appointments for Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for both children ages 5 to 11 (pediatric dosage) and children/teens 12 and up (full dosage) by appointment only.  In addition to these primary 2 dose vaccinations, we are also now scheduling booster doses for teens aged 16 to 18 (adult dose).

If you are interested in scheduling a vaccine appointment for your child/teen, please send us a MyChart message with this request.  Please DO NOT call the office to request this unless you do not have a MyChart portal account--the front desk will be able to help you sent up this portal access.  We want to keep our phone lines open so we can provide much needed winter time care for our patients.   We encourage our patient families to sign up a MyChart portal account for each child as we will be using this secure email option to inform our families as we weather this COVID-19 pandemic.
