"As a pediatrician, I have the privilege of not only caring for children, but also connecting with the family as a whole. I see my role as helping parents discover healthy and enjoyable ways of taking care of their children."
We understand that children don’t always like going to the doctor. That’s why our approach to pediatrics removes the stigma associated with a doctor’s office visit. We’ve thoughtfully designed both the physical space and the visit experience, and have given our providers the time and tools to connect with your children.
We want your kids to be comfortable and engaged with their health so that we can help them grow into thriving adults. We think your kids can enjoy their trips to the doctor and start a lifelong health partnership.
We’ve built a positive and collaborative wellness home for you and your family. When you walk into our office, you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly team members, who can help you coordinate your family’s health care, including your in-office visits, camp physicals and specialist referrals. You’ll spend your entire visit with a board-certified pediatrician or family doctor who can care for your entire family.
Our providers are eager to build strong and lasting relationships with their patients. They want you to feel comfortable sharing your parenting experiences during visits, emailing them questions, and calling our practice for questions about something as sudden as a fever or as routine as a well check.
We offer same and next-day appointments for when your child needs to be seen soon. We also provide email access directly with your child’s provider, as well as 24/7 phone support from our Virtual Medical Team to help with immediate questions and after-hours support.
Additionally, our on-site lab supports blood work and immunizations. It’s just one more way that we’re trying to fit right into your busy schedule.
You can register your child if you're still expecting with our pediatric registration form. We'll collect whatever information you have, but don't worry if your baby doesn't have a name yet - we'll update the chart with any new information after he or she is born.
Within a day after your baby is born, give us a call to book his or her first appointment. The first well visit with your baby’s provider is typically scheduled for three days after your baby leaves the hospital. Remember to budget extra time to get out of the house with a newborn, and please bring any records and hospital discharge information.
In addition to traditional pediatric care and our 24/7 support team, we are also pleased to be able to offer breastfeeding and lactation support at our Laurel Heights office. Our on-staff Lactation Educator is available for 60 minute lactation consulting sessions to help you with a range of feeding solutions including breastfeeding, breast pumping, bottle feeding and weaning. Her personalized approach has been well-received by our families, and her appointments are typically billed through insurance.
Members can schedule lactation consulting appointments by calling our Laurel Heights office at 415-593-1134.
Choosing one provider for the whole family offers greater convenience and a more holistic healthcare experience. Your provider will have an understanding of your family’s health history and values to better treat you and your child. That said, it’s not necessary and you are always able to visit with any of our providers in any of our offices, since all of our providers have access to your secure, electronic medical records.
Membership to One Medical is $149 per year. This fee allows us to provide services above and beyond what insurance provides.
We do not currently offer discounts for families, although this is something we are considering. We are confident that you’ll find the experience worthwhile, but if you are ever unhappy, please let us know and we can refund your membership fee.
Our board-certified providers are trained to handle everything from preventive medicine to treatment of acute and chronic conditions. San Francisco team members who have a specific interest in pediatrics include:
