Bancroft Pediatric Medical Group has had the joy and privilege of providing excellent pediatric care for over 60 years. David Bruser, M.D., the first pediatrician in San Leandro, founded Bancroft Pediatric Medical Group in 1944. Since then, the practice has consisted of an outstanding selection of pediatricians who provide exceptional primary pediatric care in San Leandro and neighboring areas including San Lorenzo, Castro Valley, Hayward, Alameda, and Oakland. In 1994 Bancroft Pediatric Medical Group was honored by the City of San Leandro with a plaque of commendation for their 50 years of dedicated service to their patients within the community.
Today, Bancroft Pediatric Medical Group has served multiple generations of patients, with most types of public and private insurance, from a wonderful variety of different cultures. Our physicians and the majority of our staff are bilingual in English and Spanish and some are bilingual in English and Tagalog.
We have recently moved our office to provide a newly renovated space with larger exam rooms, easier parking and ground floor access into our office. We continue to have separate waiting rooms for well and sick patients.
Our practice is continuously working to improve and expand our care for our patients, often in conjunction with community organizations. We were one of the first practices in the area to have an after hours advice line and also one of the first to join the California Immunization Registry. We are a Reach Out and Read site and we will give your child a book at each well checkup starting from 6 months of age. We offer routine expanded developmental screening at 18 months and 2 years in conjunction with the First 5 Alameda County/Every Child Counts program. We have recently started to provide fluoride varnish for those children most in need for enhanced oral health care. Currently, we are working on a project with several county organizations to improve our “medical home” policies, particularly for those patients with the most severe chronic illnesses who have California Children’s Services.
Bancroft Pediatric Medical Group upholds its tradition to provide the best possible quality pediatric care to all of their patients. It is our mission to enhance the health and well being of children in the communities we serve, through commitment to compassion and excellence in health care service.
