RE: Pediatrician that takes Cigna insurance?
I would highly recommend Dr. Karin Schiffman in Berkeley, behind Alta Bates. She is accepting new patients and takes Cigna. She has a solo practice, so you aren't shuffled among various doctors in a practice, especially helpful in my opinion for kids with a chronic medical condition. I can't speak to her experience with ADHD, but she's the type of person who wouldn't hesitate to tell you if she didn't think she was the right fit for your son. Good luck!
We recently switched from Kaiser to Cigna PPO for health coverage. Can anyone recommend a pediatrician who is participating in the Cigna plan? We live in Oakland, near the Berkeley border, and would prefer someone close by, but our main concerns are that we want someone who is thorough, caring, experienced and practical. To explain, I was very turned off by one doctor who seemed most concerned about whether our baby was waking up at night rather than whether she was healthy and well. We would rather find a new doctor who is more concerned about her health and wellbeing as a whole. If that makes sense and you can recommend anyone, we would greatly appreciate it. Thanks a lot. Hope
