If you or anybody in your household has traveled out of state or by plane in the last 14 days, your visit will need to be done either virtually via a telehealth visit (followed by a brief in person physical once your 14 day quarantine period is over) or rescheduled.                                                                                                                 A negative COVID test within the 14 days will not exempt you from this rule.  Clickhere for Travel Update 

Please contact the office prior to your appointment if you or your child has ANY of the following symptoms:   runny nose, congestion, sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath, vomiting or diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell.  

Only ONE caregiver will be allowed to attend an in person visit for children older than 2 months--other caregivers are welcome to video in.  

COVID Testing:  We are able to refer for testing at select pediatric sites for symptomatic patients but there can be fluctuating delay in receiving an appointment/results.  Click here for other COVID-19 testing resources.

Influenza vaccines are still available.  Please contact our office to schedule ASAP.  

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.
