COVID-19 is affecting us all. We hope you are staying well and healthy during this time.

Dear Hilltop families:

The Bay Area, like the rest of the U.S. and world, is currently experiencing a surge in COVID-19, primarily due to the highly contagious Omicron variant. As a result, testing for COVID is again in high demand. We hope you are staying healthy and safe. We encourage all of our families, if possible, to purchase at-home rapid tests to have on hand and to take advantage of routine testing offered through schools. Currently, given our limited supply of rapid testing, we are not able to offer rapid tests for asymptomatic patients. Our providers strongly encourage everyone 5 and older to get vaccinated against COVID and, for those eligible, to get their 3rd vaccine. More information on vaccines may be found here. To search for a vaccine appointment, use Myturn. We are offering COVID vaccinations by appointment for our patients ages 5-11 years. Please call to inquire about making an appointment. The current recommendation is for immunocompromised patients aged 5-11 years to also get a 3rd booster. If you have a question about whether your child qualifies for a 3rd dose, please call or message us. We are continuing to offer COVID testing on a limited basis, including rapid and PCR tests. For all patients who are students of West Contra Costa Unified School District, here is updated guidance from the District regarding isolation and quarantine.


Here is additional information on where else to find testing:

  • Testing through through WCCUSD (for students)
  • Testing through Contra Costa County
  • ArcPoint offers testing in Richmond
  • Testing through Test The People

We will continue to see well children in the office for check ups and to screen every patient and family prior to entry into the office. Given how quickly the situation is changing and the high level of medical need our community is facing, there may be a need to reschedule well child checks with limited notice - we apologize in advance and ask for your understanding. We will continue to see sick children outside in order to protect our patients and community. We are continuing to screen all patients ahead of time over the phone to ask about COVID symptoms – it is vital to protect the health of our staff, our community, and our patients that you answer these questions honestly. Given the increased demand for appointments, we also continue to ask that you let us know in advance if you are not able to attend your appointment. Again, please contact us with any questions. We appreciate your patience as we work to accommodate increased medical needs and demand for testing.

Sincerely,

Erica Leigh, MD

    -Aubrey, Mother of 4

  • The Hilltop staff is extremely accommodating. They really listen, which is a big deal. I’m the parent and no one knows my kids better than I do. Dr. Feldman really takes time with my kids, yet he’s concise and efficient. I can tell he genuinely cares about my kids and he is always on time for our appointments. I’ve never been dissatisfied.
