COVID-19 Update

Welcome to Boulevard Pediatrics! 

Comprehensive, Personalized Care of Infants, Children & Adolescents

Welcome to Boulevard Pediatrics, a leading pediatric provider for infants, children and teens in Encino, California. Our warm, inviting office is designed to facilitate hands-on, creative play for our smallest patients, opportunities to read and explore for children, and a relaxing waiting area for teens and parents. We are committed to preserving the health of the children in our community. Our practice specializes in chronic and acute medical care, and we provide well care visits and vaccinations.

Our experienced physicians, Dr. Jena K. Liddy, Dr. Jeremy F. Shapiro, Dr. Katrin Lalezarzadeh and Dr. Keith Bayan, continually strive for consistency and continuity when it comes to the care of your child. Our desire is to be more available to you, giving you the time, as parents, to express and solve your concerns about your children. We are committed to the goal of forming a doctor-patient relationship that is positive, comfortable and memorable for you and your child.

Practice Philosophy

We believe that by promoting healthy emotional and physical development, as well as emphasizing the value of good nutrition, education and exercise, we can enable your child to build a strong foundation for his or her future. As part of our preventive philosophy, we also advocate the use of childhood vaccines, and will spend whatever time necessary to help you reach comfort with your decision to proceed with this important intervention. We believe in maintaining a caring, personalized environment for your child.

At Boulevard Pediatrics, we believe in the value of ongoing education for parents and caregivers. As a result, we take the time to enrich your knowledge about nutrition, mental health, education choices, and safety. In addition, we provide ongoing continuing education opportunities for our entire staff, so that they stay abreast of new developments in our field.

Thank you for your interest in our practice. We appreciate the trust you have placed in us.

COVID-19 Update

To our Boulevard Pediatrics Family,

As things rapidly develop in regard to COVID-19 pandemic, we first want to let you all know we are here for you.  We realize during these times the stress being placed upon you all, is pushing us to our limits but we are confident that by following appropriate guidelines and taking appropriate measures, we will overcome.

So in order for us to do our part in best serving and caring for your children, the following measures will be implemented immediately (and some have already been put in place):

1. No further Urgent Hours until further notice.  We will see patients by appointment only.  

2. Phones will be on at 8AM.

3. We will thoroughly screen reasons for all ill visits.  Pending those discussions, we will determine best course of action.

4. Telemedicine visits will be expanding in their capacity so that we may avoid in-office visits whenever possible.  Please have your child's weight and temperature available at time of appointment.

5. WELL-CHILD CARE VISITS (AKA physicals) will be in the morning and early afternoon hours.   They will not overlap with Ill Visits.

6. ILL VISITS will only be scheduled in the mid to later afternoon hours.

7. In order to provide the best protection for everyone, we ask for only 1 parent/caregiver to attend each visit.  Current guidelines are for all who come to the office to please wear your own face mask.  Our staff will be wearing face masks for all visits.   

8. Anyone who enters our office will be temperature screened at the front door.

9. COVID-19 testing: We can arrange for both RT-PCR Testing (currently with infection) and IgG testing (previously had infection).  Please contact office to discuss further.

10. We are taking medical supply donations.   Please contact us to arrange for a drop-off/pick up as the shortage of medical supplies is a real concern for health care providers.  We will make sure those who need them will get them (including your Boulevard Pediatrics team).

Be well.  Be safe.   Your Boulevard Pediatrics Family.
