Pediatric care & specialties

At Kaiser Permanente, we believe it takes a team to provide high quality care to our young patients. We have more than 135 pediatricians close to where you live, making it easy to find the right provider to care for your child. All of our pediatricians are accessible through our secure email on, meaning you can email your child’s provider 24 hours a day, seven day a week for non-urgent issues. And because we know children don’t get sick during normal business hours only, we have pediatricians available on the weekend for those instances where you can’t wait for normal business.

One example: Pediatric Oncology

Kaiser Permanente’s Children’s Oncology Group uses state of the art clinical trial medicines and gives a fighting chance to children like Virginia Mochel. Our Pediatric Oncologists are one part of Kaiser Permanente’s extensive pediatric specialty care team.

Video appointments: an easy way to connect with your child’s doctor

Kaiser Permanente is a leader in health care technology – with our electronic medical record system, and the tools we offer on and via our phone app.

KP Northern California is taking to the next level with the implementation of video appointments. You can connect with your physician or your child’s pediatrician using your home computer. Our extensive network of pediatric care subspecialists is trained to use this technology. This can help make it easier on families that are already stressed from taking care of a sick child.

You just need to have PC with internet access, email, Adobe Flash, and a sufficient internet speed that will support a smooth image. The system provides a secure, private video connection. Check with your child’s pediatrician for more information.
