Coronavirus Social Distancing
We have changed our practice in order to maintain as much social distancing as possible.
First, we are now doing many of our visits by video. These are scheduled exactly like our in-office visits, and we will walk you through installing the Zoom app and other things before the appointment.
Second, we are doing visits in the parking lot for those children who are sick, and need to be seen in person. I will be wearing PPE.
Finally, we are doing some non-sick visits in the parking lot in order to keep patients from having to enter a medical office building.
Please keep your family safe,
Michael Yamaguchi MD

As of Friday, March 20, 2020 we will be saying goodbye to our PNP Catie Straut Cable as she joins the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics Team at Stanford Children's Health. She'll be pursuing her clinical research interests in a speciality care setting, and working towards a doctorate degree. While she is looking forward to this exciting new chapter she is very sad to be leaving primary care and will miss caring for all of the wonderful children and families at TLP!
