Office Policies

Immunization Policy

Berkeley Pediatric Medical Group does not accept families who are unwilling to vaccinate their children. This is against our philosophy of high quality, preventive medicine. Feel free to discuss immunization questions with your physician. Please see the Berkeley Pediatrics Immunization Policy.

Cancellation

If you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, please call the office at least 24 hours ahead to cancel or reschedule that appointment. Failure to cancel your appointment without 24 hours notice will result in a $50 fee.

School & Health forms

We will complete a health, camp or school form if the patient has had a well check within the last 12 months. Forms can be dropped off, faxed or mailed to:

Berkeley Pediatrics
1650 Walnut St.
Berkeley, CA 94709
Fax: (510) 848-3109

Due to the high volume of requests, please allow 5 - 7 business days for the completion of the form. There is a $10 fee per form. If the form is needed sooner than 5 business day, the charge is $35. If the form is needed within 24 hrs, the charge is $60. Checks should be made payable to Berkeley Pediatrics. We will call you when forms are ready for pick up. We will mail the form home if payment and a self addressed stamped envelope are provided. We prefer not to mail forms to the school or camp since they do get lost.

Payments & Insurance

Payment for services is expected at the time of your child's visit. This includes co-pays, balance from prior visits and payment in full when we are not contracted with your insurance carrier. We accept cash, check and credit card (Visa, Mastercard & American Express). The accompanying parent or other adult is responsible for full payment and providing current insurance information. You may elect to keep credit card information on file to speed the check-out process. Please fill out this EPay form.
