Lactation Services
 
Breastfeeding is certainly one of the most natural things in the world. But that doesn’t mean it is always easy. Lots of times, it isn’t. It is a wonderful thing, then, that we now have a professional lactation consultant to help nursing mothers.
 
At Bayside we have two certified lactation consultant, on our staff.

Amrit Khalsa, RN, IBCLC, works in our Berkeley office , but Bayside patients from any of our offices can make an appointment and travel out to see her. 

Staci Sampo, RN, CPNP, IBCLC, works with Bayside affiliation for the Tri-Valley area.

In addition to Amrit, many of our clinicians are quite skilled in coaching nursing mothers, and they can help nursing mothers at regular visits. 
We also have other resources for lactation counseling that we can refer you to. We are strong proponents of breastfeeding, so please don’t hesitate to tap into us for help. 

Check out our Bayside Health Library's Breastfeeding section, for links and handouts that might be helpful. 
 
Pediatric Pulmonology 

Diseases of the lung are very common in children, with asthma being the leading culprit. Although our primary care clinicians deal with these issues every day, because these illnesses can become severe and difficult to diagnose and manage, we often need consultation from specialists in pediatric pulmonary disease. 

We are fortunate to have Albert Yu, MD, with us at Bayside. Dr Yu completed the required two years of clinical training of a fellowship in pulmonology. Because he did not go on to do the required third year of research, he is not a board certified pulmonologist, but he has just as much clinical training as though he were fully board qualified. We are lucky, then, that we can have instant consultation and appointment making with Dr. Yu for the benefit of our patients. 

Dr. Yu sees patients in our Walnut Creek and Pleasanton offices, and makes consultations with patients everywhere in Bayside.
