Kaiser pediatrician (Oakland preferred)


Does anyone one have a recommendation for a Kaiser pediatrician? I have a 2 month old and am particularly looking for someone who isn't condescending and is also open to working with parents who want to space out vaccinations.

Hi, hopefully you saw all the reviews on the BPN website for Kaiser Oakland pediatricians? If not, you might want to take a look. If I were you I would check on Kaiser's website to see which pediatricians are accepting new patients, and just pick one.  You can always change later if you don't like the one you picked. I am on my third kid at Kaiser Oakland, and I have met a lot of pediatricians at Kaiser over the years. I never had a pediatrician at Kaiser who was condescending, to me or to my kids. Quite the opposite. Stay positive and expect the best!

We see Jennifer Tenny and really like her (we have a six month old). She's very kind, thoughtful, and always willing to spend time talking to us -- I never feel rushed! We are vaccinating, but I hear from other parents that she is open to working with alternative spacing. Her panel was closed when we were first looking, but I kept calling and it randomly opened up -- which I guess is pretty common.

We love love love Dr. Nora Garcia at Kaiser Oakland. She's really thoughtful and caring and great at interacting with the kids.
