Families of Primary Pediatrics,

Some exciting changes are coming to our practice! On August 11, 2020, Primary Pediatrics will join UCSF Benioff Children’s Physicians (UBCP), a part of UCSF Health.

Our practice has deep roots in the East Bay community. Primary Pediatric Medical Group was formed in 1996 from three private practices with offices in Oakland and Alameda. Two years later, we added our Castro Valley office. Over the years, we have grown so that we currently have a total of 9 clinicians and a very busy practice in the East Bay.

Our mission has always been and will continue to be to provide exceptional pediatric care to every family every day with a spirit of warmth, friendliness, and compassion.

Our affiliation with UBCP will allow us to continue to meet the medical needs of all our patients. There will be some changes, most notably to our medical records and billing systems. We ask for your patience while we learn and make these improvements.

Most importantly, the people, offices, and style of practice that you have become familiar with will not change. That is our promise to you.
We are very excited about this transition and hope it will allow all of us to continue the journey of raising happy and healthy children together.

What our patients say about us

"I LOVE this place. I've been taking my children here for 4 years now & it feels like a family! Staff is amazing & very helpful, the dr's are just as amazing & great with kids!!! Keep up the good work"

- Kris W.

"PPMG in Alameda is the BEST! Our boys have been going since they were infants. The staff is always so welcoming, friendly, helpful, and put our shy kids at ease.
Susan Alford is a Disney Princess who practices medicine- she is absolutely delightful with children and parents alike and so genuinely caring. As long as she's there, we'll never go anywhere else. I hold her in the highest regard and would not hesitate to recommend her to parents, especially those with anxious children. She is a gem!"

- Catherine P.

"We have been patients of Dr. Ducker for 25 years, but we have seen every pediatrician in the group. I have only high praise for the care my babies have received. While most of our medical needs are fairly routine, some of my babies have had unusual and emergent medical needs. They have always been seen quickly and the care has been thorough and kind. I have always found the office staff and the nurses to be friendly and caring".
