Pediatric Care in Santa Barbara, CA
Boutique medical care for children with a modern approach.
During the COVID19 Health Crisis we are offering a Virtual Peapod Membership to facilitate care for children. Select Virtual Visits may be provided to offset the burden to emergency room facilities. You may register online directly and we will contact you with more details. Some features of our practice include:
- Leading edge medical communication with providers and staff via text, email, video visits and phone.
- Parents invited to download the Spruce App and must have an active Annual or Virtual Peapod Membership for use.
Springboard Pediatric Supplements from Ortho Molecular Products is now exclusively available online to Peapod Members. Our goal is to provide supplements safe and securely by eliminating third-party distributors, which can expose children to product contamination, tampering and variable dosing.
- Petite Pediatrics Acute Care Pod: An Airstream Basecamp trailer has been set-up as our Acute Care Unit for children.
- Petite Pediatrics Car Visit: A select parking space has been designated for drive-up testing / car visits.
Childhood and Community Health:
Petite Pediatrics supports and requires childhood immunizations for our patients. This protects them against vaccine preventable illnesses and protects vulnerable populations such as infants and those who can’t be vaccinated for medical reasons.
Peapod Membership Program
The Peapod Membership Program is a concierge medicine program offered by Petite Pediatrics. It is a per family annual fee for non-medical services related to patients overall care. The Program is designed to help maintain the personalized level of service that is the hallmark of Petite Pediatrics and assures a high-quality, patient-centered medical home.
Summer 2020 During these difficult times, I would like to personally update patients and families at Petite Pediatrics and our greater community about our “Practice Commitment” and the modifications we are making to ensure the safe delivery of care for children.
Cloth Face Coverings for Children During COVID-19 Why are people wearing cloth face coverings right now? Since so many people who have COVID-19 don’t have symptoms, wearing cloth face coverings reduces the chance of transmitting the virus through the spray of spit or respiratory droplets.
