Walnut Creek Pediatrics
Re: Pediatrician needed in Orinda area
I live in Lafayette but use Walnut Creek Pediatric. All 3 doctors in the practice are excellent. The facility is pretty basic but the care is unmatched. They even let you stay in your car until you are ready to go in the event your child is sick or uncomfortable or you don't want to expose them. I left Lafayette Pediatric after being told ''oh you must be a new mother'' a few too many times by the office staff and long waits for shots, etc. Farther but worth it
I am a first-time mom looking for a pediatrician in Walnut Creek. I haven't had much luck with my OB-GYN, so I am hesitant to ask for her recommendation. If anyone knows a good pediatrician in Walnut Creek who listens to my questions and concerns, takes his/her time during the appointments and is more personal than an average doctor, please let me know. Thank you. Carolina
Re: doctors covered on our insurance
We must have the same insurace - I was presented with the same choices! We chose Christina Chua-Lim and have been pretty happy so far. We have been seeing her for a year and she has handled all of our daughter's needs well. The only thing I want to caution you about - she seems anti-breastfeeding! Ever since our daughter's 9-month appointment she has asked when I plan to wean her. (She is 18 months and I still haven't!) She seems mostly concerned that she is getting enough solid foods, but still, I didn't like the pressure. Other than that, she has been very good and our daughter likes her. She is also great about getting sick kids in ASAP. I can usually get an appointment within an hour of my call. Her nurses can be a little ditzy sometimes though. TWICE they have marked her as weighing XX pounds, 16 oz! I have also heard good things about Nancy Schwartzman and we are considering switching to her because her office is closer to our home. Good luck! Jaime
Re: pediatrician for child with potential ADD. I may be somewhat biased :),
but I highly recommend my husband, Toby Lustig. He's with Walnut Creek
Pediatrics (934-9339) and they're part of Hill Physicians. Toby has a
special interest in behavioral/developmental issues, did his residency at
Oakland Children's, and he really loves kids!
