Important notes re: testing and the recent surge (click to read): No asymptomatic testing here at office available at this time  (1/11/22)

(updated 1/11/2022)   We are using local public health (Berkeley PH and Alameda PH) guidelines for isolation/quarantine.  We are still following the 10 day isolation with COVID-19 infection and 7 day quarantine after exposure with a negative test at/after day 5.  

In light of the Omicron surge we will be adhering more strictly to our COVID-19 screening process in order to keep the office safe for our at risk patients and children under age 5.  If your child has had ANY symptoms including runny nose, congestion, sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath, vomiting/diarrhea or loss of taste or smell in the last 7 days, your well visit will need to be rescheduled or changed to a virtual visit.   If you have  been exposed to COVID-19 in the last 10 days, your visit may also need to be rescheduled.  Please read these Screening Guidelines and contact the office to reschedule or change your appointment (updated 1/11/2022)

We have COVID-19 vaccines for patients aged 5+ and boosters for ages 16 to 18.  Please send us a MyChart message to request an appointment
