We are a PRIVATE PRACTICE taking care of children with diabetes and other endocrine disorders in Northern California. We do not practice general pediatrics and not associated to any Hospital System. We are not employed by Sutter Health, Dignity Health or UC Davis. However, we see patients from all these health systems and insurances. (We see patients who have Sutter insurance, Mercy Insurance, Hills Physicians, Western Health Advantage, etc)
When your child needs hospital admission, we admit them at Sutter Anderson Lucchetti Children's Center because, in our opinion, it has the best in patient diabetes and endocrine service specifically catering to children and in PENS team we have a world class Pediatric Multidisciplinary Diabetes team.
