Kiddox strives to remain constant advocates for your children and we understand that in order to achieve continuous care staying accessible as your insurance changes is imperative. To better meet your family’s insurance needs Kiddox has contracted with Covered California’s Blue Cross, Blue Shield and Health Net PPO plans.
Well and Sick Waiting Room
Keeping your child healthy is Kiddox’s number one goal. With this in mind, we have added an additional waiting room to help separate your healthy and sick children. This is especially important for your newborn and during cold and flu season.
Prenatal Meetings for Expectant Parents
If you’re undecided or just want to meet with us, we’d love to meet you. Stop in any Wednesday morning to meet with Dr. Bourne. Please note that from time-to-time a prior obligation may conflict with Wednesday morning prenatal meetings, so an RSVP is encouraged. If he Wednesday you select is not available one of our staff will notify you and help you reschedule.
Lactation consultations are available at the time of your infant’s appointment. If you are interested in a consultation please let our appointment specialist know when you schedule your appointment.
Pertussis Vaccine Requirement
California is currently experiencing a pertussis epidemic. As a result of an increased number of reported pertussis cases, Assembly Bill 354 became law. The California Department of Public Health recommends that all Californians 10 years and older receive a booster shot against pertussis. All students entering 7th through 12th grades will need proof of a Tdap booster before entering school. Additionally, caregivers should also make sure they are up-to-date with the pertussis vaccine.
