OUR BACKGROUND

 In September of 1994, Children First Medical Group, Inc. (CFMG) was formed as a California professional corporation functioning as an Independent Physician Association (IPA).  

     CFMG was formed as a comprehensive pediatric network offering primary care and pediatric specialty care for children.  The physician members of CFMG are hospital-based at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland and community based pediatricians located throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.

     The CFMG network serves as a choice for pediatric well care and specialty care services in the local community, in addition to providing tertiary care referral services to surrounding states and counties throughout Northern California and Nevada.

     CFMG pediatric specialists serve as the preferred pediatric referral networks for many other medical groups and IPA’s.
