My daughter needs to have a lump removed from her neck and biopsied. We are looking for a great ENT referral and would love any recommendations. Thanks!

We’ve been seeing Kevin Gersten through Sutter/Palo Alto Medical Foundation. He is all the way in Fremont but came highly recommended for pediatrics and surgery in the ENT field.
Dr. Jackie Weinstein at children’s hospital Oakland is the ENT that did my child’s surgery. She did a great job and was very kind. She answered all my questions and took all of my concerns seriously.
You didn't mention what insurance you have, but if it's Kaiser, I can recommend Dr. Luke Schloegel at Kaiser Oakland. He has a great, easygoing way with kids and I appreciated his measured approach with meds and potential surgery/treatment. I know he's been practicing for a long time. Plus at Kaiser Oakland, your daughter would likely be cared for by Pedi Anesthesia if she needs that for her excision/biopsy. Good luck!
Dr. Erin Simms-Edwards did my daughter's ear tube surgery at Children's in Oakland, but she sees patients out of an office at Berkeley ENT on Dwight and I think a few other offices in the area too. She was great, I really liked her and my 4yo did too. Good luck!
