Family Medicine at Lakeshore

The UCSF Family Medicine Center at Lakeshore offers primary care for patients of all ages including infants, children, adults and seniors. In family medicine, all members of a family may receive medical care from the same doctor or nurse practitioner.

Our mission is to provide extraordinary primary care. We are the medical home from birth to old age for patients from all walks of life and diverse cultural and family backgrounds. We aim to create a learning and healing environment with our patients, students and colleagues and to model innovative, conscientious, high quality care.

At Lakeshore, doctors provide a wide range of primary care services including, preventive medicine, care of ongoing chronic illnesses and treatment of acute or serious problems. Services include primary care for adults and children, prenatal care and dermatology.

When a patient needs more specialized care such as laboratory, X-ray or emergency services, the staff at Lakeshore refers patients to the appropriate specialist and department at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. Lakeshore doctors communicate and collaborate with specialists and hospital doctors to ensure that their patients receive the most complete care available.

After-Hours Care

We have partnered with the Pediatric Evening Referral Clinic (PERC) to provide our patients with evening, weekend and holiday appointments. If your child has an urgent medical need outside of normal office hours, please call (415) 387-9293 to schedule an appointment at PERC.

PERC is located at 3838 California St., Suite 111. It offers weekday evening appointments from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.; you may call to make an appointment starting at 5 p.m. On weekends and holidays, it is open from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., with scheduling available starting at 7:30 a.m.

NOTE: If you think your child may be having a life-threatening emergency, immediately call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency room.

Pregnant Women and Children

Lakeshore doctors have made caring for pregnant women and children a special focus of their clinical practice. They provide prenatal care and offer post-delivery care for mothers and their infants in the hospital.

Our family medicine doctors, who care for pregnant women, work to create a partnership with patients to provide high-quality personalized care. Our group provides women with the information needed to make informed choices, creating a birth plan that emphasizes the special needs and desires of the individual.

All deliveries are performed at UCSF Medical Center. If doctors detect a high-risk pregnancy, Lakeshore doctors have immediate access to UCSF Medical Center's team of perinatologists and neonatologists. At Lakeshore, patients receive personalized care from family medicine doctors and access to the latest and most sophisticated medical technologies when necessary.
