Announcing the new patient portal access to your child's medical record and pediatrician!

This August we are proud to announce our new patient portal to help families access medical information (such as immunization records) and message SF Bay pediatricians. First you must contact our front desk staff to add your email to the patient portal. You will receive an email shortly afterward to help you set up your password and check on the links your children's files attached to your account.

You may access the patient protal by signing in with your email and password using either the Patient Portal button on this website's main menu or this PCC patient portal link.

After you log in, you will see your child's name listed and any upcoming appointments. You may also see a Messages section for sending messages to the office.

  • First Time Login: If this is your first time logging in, My Kid’s Chart will ask you to enter a new password when you log in.

  • Do You See the Patients (each name of your children) You Expect?: If you are a parent or guardian of several children, our office can add each child to your user account. Patients can also appear on more than one login, so more than one parent or guardian, and the patient themselves, may be granted an account with access to the same patient’s medical records.

  • Automatic Log Out: After 5 minutes of inactivity, MyKidsChart will log you out.

  • Does Your Name Appear Correctly?: You can click the “Settings” button to change your name.

Our office manages your account, and we can make changes at any time. Contact our office if you are not seeing the family members you expect to see.

Download an Immunization Record

Do you need a copy of your child’s immunizations record? In the Immunizations section, you can select the PDF link to download a copy.

Send a Message

Click “Create New Message” to create a new message.

Enter a subject for your message, and the text of your question. Then click Send.

My Kid’s Chart will deliver the message directly to our SF Bay Pediatrics practice, where clinical staff can review it and answer your question.

Add to a Message?: After writing your message, you can add more information to it. Just open the message, add additional text, and click Send again.

Read and Respond to Messages

If a physician or other staff member sends you a message, or replies to your message, My Kid’s Chart will send you an e-mail telling you that a message is waiting.

Log in to your account to view your messages. The most recent messages appear at the top. Unread messages have a green indicator. Touch or click on a message to read it.

If the message is a reply to an existing thread, you can review the reply as well as the previous messages in the thread. You can press Reply and type a response to continue the conversation.

Messages are Private: Your conversation is not stored in any e-mail account. Your messages can not be read by any other My Kid’s Chart user, even those who have access to the same patient’s records.


AAP Sleep Recommendations by age

With summer coming to an end, it is time to plan and adjust bedtimes and wake up times gradually to be ready for the start of school in 1-3 weeks.
AAP endorses these sleep recommendations:
  • Infants* 4 months to 12 months should sleep 12 to 16 hours per 24 hours (including naps) on a regular basis to promote optimal health.

  • Children 1 to 2 years of age should sleep 11 to 14 hours per 24 hours (including naps) on a regular basis to promote optimal health.

  • Children 3 to 5 years of age should sleep 10 to 13 hours per 24 hours (including naps) on a regular basis to promote optimal health.

  • Children 6 to 12 years of age should sleep 9 to 12 hours per 24 hours on a regular basis to promote optimal health.

  • Teenagers 13 to 18 years of age should sleep 8 to 10 hours per 24 hours on a regular basis to promote optimal health. 

    *No recommendation for Infants under 4 months  because of the high variability in this age group.
