We are a PRIVATE PRACTICE taking care of children with diabetes and other endocrine disorders. We do not practice general pediatrics and not associated to any Hospital System. We are not employed by Sutter Health, Dignity Health or UC Davis. However, we see patients from all these health systems and insurances. (We see patients who have Sutter insurance, Mercy Insurance, Hills Physicians, Western Health Advantage, etc)

When your child needs hospital admission, we admit them at Sutter Anderson Lucchetti Children's Center because, in our opinion, it has the best in patient diabetes and endocrine service specifically catering to children and in PENS team we have a world class Pediatric Multidisciplinary Diabetes team.

Welcome & Bienvenida

Hello Parents and Families:

We welcome you and we hope that together we will make a positive impact in your/your child’s life. Our practice is committed to treating and using protected health information about you/your child responsibly. We want you to know that we consider it a privilege to take care of you and your family.
Your physician during most of the visits will request that your child have some laboratory and radiological studies done. We do not provide results over the phone, since numerical results do not provide the full implications of the disease process or treatment needed. Instead, to help you understand the implications of these results, we require you to make a follow up appointment.
We insist you to keep the appointments schedule to help ensure the continuity of care. We make every effort to make courtesy calls; however, we ask that you use the appointment card as a reminder. It is ultimately your responsibility to keep the appointment. Missing appointments repeatedly will result in discontinuation of the physician-patient relationship.

Our office uses Electronic Medical Record and Electronic Check-in process. While we know that sometimes it is a lot of work to input the information, it is MANDATORY that you abide by our rules to make our interaction more powerful and help us provide better healthcare services to your family. 

We wish you the very best.

God bless you and your family
Dr. Prakasam and the entire team at CEDE
