Manhattan Beach Pediatrics
Drs. Liu and Davari believe in the importance of immunizations for the well-being of every child and so follow the standard immunization schedule of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) which is published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and American College of Obstretricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Parents who have or plan to space out or withhold vaccines are not a good fit for our practice.
Parents and patients are encouraged to call with any questions. The office staff is trained to answer most non-clinical questions, including billing inquiries. Staff members are not able to give medical advice over the phone. If you have a medical-related inquiry regarding your child, we ask that you leave a message with one of our staff members. Your primary care physician, the doctor in the office at the time, or our nurse will return your call. When leaving messages during office hours, please keep in mind that our priority is with the patients that are in the office. Therefore, your call will be returned once a medical caregiver finishes seeing our patients in the office.
If your child or teenager becomes acutely ill after office hours, we recommend referring to the Symptom Checker tab at the top of this website for instructions on management. Additionally, nurse triage lines are available through your insurance provider. The contact number is usually listed on the reverse of your insurance card. If you are directed by your insurance provider's nurse triage line to contact your doctor, please contact our office number and press (*) to be connected to our answering service. While you are waiting for a doctor to return your call after-hours, please disarm the feature on your phone that prevents calls from "blocked" or "anonymous" numbers. For privacy purposes, our doctors have this feature on their home and cell phones. For medical emergencies, please call 911. If your child swallows, drinks, inhales or is exposed to a medication, drug, herbal supplement, toxic chemical, household cleaner, noxious gas, radioactive material or other concerning substance, please call Poison Control immediately at (800) 222-1222.
