Back to Medical Recommendations and
I've looked over the advice and recommendations from the archives
regarding Pediatricians in the North Bay & Contra Costa County but
there is only one listing for Benicia and it was dated 7/99. I am
seeking recommendations for a pediatrician in the Benicia or Vallejo
area-Solano County in general. My husband and I just moved out to
Vallejo in March and we don't have too many leads on great pediatricians
in the area. Any recommendations will be much appreciated.
I can recommend Dr. Alan Sher and Dr. F. Shanee Martin of North Bay
Pedatricics. They have offices in both Vallejo and Benicia
and their numbers are in the phone book.
My children had these 2 doctors for ten years until we
moved away last year. They had been recommended to us by our former
pediatrician at Berkeley Pediatrics. We started off with Dr. Sher because
Dr. Martin was not accepting patients at that time.
Dr. Sher is very soft-spoken and was well-suited to my shy children. I
also found his low-key approach very useful in calming my nerve.
My daughter switched to Dr. Martin (a female doctor) as she grew older,
but my son stayed with Dr. Sher. Dr. Martin is very personable and very
thorough in her explanations. I truly miss these 2 pediatricians.
