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: 



Office Policies

Immunization Policy

In order to uphold our practice mission is, to provide excellent community based pediatric health care enhancing the overall health and well-being of children and their families--the physicians and staff at Berkeley Pediatric Medical Group, Inc., strongly believe in the importance of universal immunization.

Berkeley Pediatric Medical Group does not accept families who are unwilling to vaccinate their children. This is against our philosophy of high quality, preventive medicine. Feel free to discuss immunization questions with your physician. Please see the Berkeley Pediatrics Immunization Policy.

Due to the high volume of requests, please allow 7-10 business days for the completion of the form. There is a $10 fee per form. If the form is needed sooner than 5 business day, the charge is $35. If the form is needed within 24 hrs, the charge is $60. Checks should be made payable to Berkeley Pediatrics. We will call you when forms are ready for pick up. We will mail the form home if payment and a self addressed stamped envelope are provided.

Payments & Insurance

Payment for services is expected at the time of your child's visit. This includes co-pays, balance from prior visits and payment in full when we are not contracted with your insurance carrier. We accept cash, check and credit card (Visa, Mastercard & American Express). The accompanying parent or other adult is responsible for full payment and providing current insurance information.
