Pediatric Medical Group

Berkeley, CA


Important Announcement

Dear Patients, Parents and Friends,

We are happy to announce that we have joined East Bay Physicians Medical Group (EBPMG), a multi-specialty physician group that is affiliated with Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation (SEBMF). The business aspects of our medical practice are now operated by Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation, allowing us to devote our full attention to providing personalized care. We greatly value our relationship with you and your family and our goal is to make the transition as seamless as possible.

We continue to practice at our current location at 2320 Woolsey Street, in Berkeley. Our existing phone and fax numbers will be forwarded to our new contact numbers for a few months. However, please note our new contact information:

Phone: (510) 204-7940
Fax: (510) 204-7959
Billing questions about care received prior to December 1: (510) 849-1791

We are thrilled that we are adopting SEBMF’s Electronic Health Record system, which allows us to build a secure, computerized version of your medical record. Additionally, Sutter Health’s online patient service, My Health Online (MHO), enables you to schedule appointments, view lab test results, request prescription refills, and send secure messages to us.

You will be able to do all this for your children who are less than 12 years of age through the MHO Proxy Access Program. Unfortunately, due to complex state and federal regulations Proxy Access is not available for children between 12 and 17 years old. As an alternative, you may submit a written request for inspection or copies of these records to the SEBMF Health Information Management (Medical Records) Department.

This is an exciting time for all of us! We look forward to continuing to provide excellent medical care to you and your family. Please do not hesitate to call us with any concerns or questions.

Wishing you best of health,

F. Ralph Berberich, MD
Steve Kowaleski, MD
Petra F. Landman, MD
Lisa L. Swearingen, MD
