Re: Kaiser Pediatrician in the East Bay?
We love our Pediatrician, ELIZABETH LOVE BASSETT MD at Pinole Kaiser. Very easy going, but skilled and super helpful. Very open to our alternative vaccine schedule and other alternative ways of doing things. It's also nice to go to a clinic that is much easier to navigate. Easy parking, quick pharmacy. We never wait long for the doc. It's very nice.

Can anyone recommend a good pediatrician at the Kaiser Richmond medical center? I was looking for reviews of the pediatricians there, but could not find anything. I am a first time mom, and have lots and lots of questions and concerns, so I would like to find a pediatrician who is very knowledgeable, kind, and who is very patient to answer my questions. Any help is much appreciated. Xun

I don't know if you are open to the Pinole facility but we see Dr. Anjana Ray. She's very patient and warm. She used to work in Richmond but moved over to Pinole when they opened the new facility (which is fantastic). Kaiser mom

Re: Attachment parenting pediatricians at Kaiser
I would highly recommend Dr. Robert Schaff at Kaiser Pinole. We are a breastfeeding, co-sleeping, baby-wearing, cloth diapering family and have been with Dr. Schaff since our son was born. When he moved to the Pinole office we followed him, even though it was slightly farther for us (we live in Berkeley). He is excellent- kind, caring, energetic, nonjudgemental, and best of all, he will discuss your child's care with you in scientific terms trusting that you are educated enough to be a part of the dialogue and never talking down to you or condescending. love our ped

I'm about to give birth to my first child. We live in Pinole and would love a recommendation for a pediatrician in the Pinole Kaiser. Looking for someone somewhat holistic, and would be willing to work with me on a possibly delayed vaccine schedule. Thank you. dj

Dr. Ray at Pinole Kaiser is wonderful--thoughtful, kind, patient with your questions. Don't know about alternative vaccination schedules, but otherwise she was great with our baby/toddler/preschooler!
Hi. Dr. Cheryln Brunetti is GREAT. betty

We are thinking about switching to Kaiser because their new clinic in Pinole is close to us. I don't know any Kaiser pediatricians. They say the Drs that are there are Drs Schaff, Ray, Mahar, Leo and Brunetti. Does anyone have any recommendations of any of these docs? Maria

Diana Mahar has to be one of the best pediatricians you will find anywhere. She is kind, incredibly smart, and an amazing doctor. Dr Mahar Fan
We use Dr. Ray as our pediatrician and love her! We live in Berkeley and have been seeing her at the Kaiser in Richmond since our son was born (he is currently 19 months.) With her transferring to Pinole (a less convenient location for us) we considered changing to a new pedi but realized that we enjoy her too much to lose her. She is very caring, great with our son and is easy going with us as well. Good luck! Heather
If the Dr. Ray moving to Pinole is Dr. Anjana Ray, I highly recommend her. Our extended family is into our second generation with Dr. Ray as our pediatrician. She has a very calm and soothing manner, which I loved as a child. She remembers kids and knows what to ask them. If she's still practicing when I have children, I would take them to her with no qualms, whatsoever. If I could find a PCP in adult medicine that I liked half as much, I'd be totally happy with Kaiser. Wish I could see a pediatrician sometimes
