Pediatrics

It’s only natural to want what’s best for your children. At Prima Kids (our pediatric offices), we give your child the best possible care in a comfortable, supportive, and child-friendly atmosphere. Our physicians and staff know how to communicate with children in an empathetic, age-appropriate way. We have separate sick- and well-child waiting areas stocked with great toys and reading materials.

As the person in charge of your child’s health and well-being, you are an integral part of your child’s care team. Our physicians value your input and make every effort to explain our findings and diagnoses as clearly as possible, taking the time to answer all your questions. Parents of Prima Kids also enjoy the following conveniences:

  • Same-day appointments
  • Access to a local after-hours clinic
  • Breastfeeding room
  • Organic and “green” products throughout the office
  • Extra diapers, wipes, and diaper cream for our littlest patients

Prima Teens

The “terrible twos” can be rough, but the terrible teens are just as challenging – and they last longer. Our doctors are experienced in treating children from birth to high school graduation, and we have many teen patients in our practice. There is a lot of information to take in around teen health, from acne to sleep patterns, nutrition to puberty, and you may not have found the answers you need. Here at Prima Kids, listening is a core value of our medical practice, and we have doctors who specialize in teen health. We are happy to talk with you and your teen about your concerns and answer all the questions you may have.

A Healthy Start for Your New Baby

There are many things to think about with a newborn. Finding your pediatrician’s office doesn’t have to be one of them. Consider visiting our practice before your baby is born. We would love to meet you, show you around our office, and talk to you about wellness care for babies. Prenatal appointments are available and free.

When a new baby is on the scene, you may be inundated with advice, whether from books, the Internet, grandma, or well-meaning friends and neighbors. Building a relationship early with your pediatrician will help you feel confident in the care your child receives while allowing our doctors to get to know your family and your concerns. You’re bound to have questions about your baby’s care, feeding and sleeping patterns, and developmental milestones. At Prima Kids we provide a safe place to ask your questions and find answers that best fit you and your baby.

Prima After Hours Urgent Care

Your child has a fever, or suffered a fall, and the doctor’s office is closed. It doesn’t look serious enough for an emergency room visit, but you’re concerned and want to see a doctor as soon as possible. In this type of situation, Prima After Hours Urgent Care is a valuable option. Learn more.

“Ouchless” Emergency Care

A trip to the Emergency Department (ED) can be scary for both children and their parents. That’s why Marin General Hospital recently introduced an “Ouchless” approach incorporating child-friendly protocols that help take the anxiety and pain out of visits. Both physicians and emergency staff have had extensive training in distraction and sensitivity techniques to calm and reassure young patients. Learn more.
