Hospital Drive Pediatrics is a neighborhood pediatric practice. Drs. Monica Kenney, Kimberly Trujillo and Patty Sabey specialize in high quality pediatric care in a small office setting. Our warm, family-centered environment allows our doctors to give each of our patients and their families the personal attention and care they need and deserve. From birth through high school, we help families raise healthy, happy children.
We are located in the heart of the Silicon Valley, adjacent to El Camino Community Hospital. Our location affords our patients easy access to ancillary services such as lab and radiology. We collaborate with excellent pediatric subspecialists in the community and at Stanford Children's Hospital in order to provide your child the best medical care possible.
We look forward to seeing you and your family at Hospital Drive Pediatrics.
For your convenience, as of September 10, 2015, all HDP doctors can be reached at 650-968-1605
Monday- Friday 9:30am - noon and 2-5 pm (Phones are open 9am-noon and 2-5pm)

If you currently use Auvi-Q, please call our office immediately for a new prescription for Epi-pen autoinjector.
We now have one phone number for all HDP pediatricians: 650-968-1605
We are committed to providing new prescriptions within 24 hours of your call, as long as we have the following information:
- how many two-packs you need,
- whether you would like to pick up the prescription or have it called/faxed to your pharmacy
- your pharmacy name, address, and phone or fax number
Your child's school will also need a new Food Allergy Action Plan that specifies Epi-pen, instead of Auvi-Q. We can provide the standard FARE plan from http://www.foodallergy.org/faap. If your school has a specific form, please send it to us ASAP. Our usual form fee will be waived for patients switching from Auvi-Q to EpiPen until this recall is resolved.
If your child has a serious allergic reaction (difficulty breathing or more than two kinds of symptoms) before you get your replacements, you should still give Auvi-Q while you call 911 or are on your way to the emergency room. Any epinephrine is better than no epinephrine in that situation. The problem is with the size of the dose, not the purity of the medication.
For more information, see the full Food and Drug Administration Press Release (excerpted below):
Sanofi US is voluntarily recalling all Auvi-Q® (epinephrine injection, USP). The recall involves all Auvi-Q currently on the market and includes both the 0.15 mg and 0.3 mg strengths for hospitals, retailers and consumers. This includes lot number 2299596 through 3037230, which expire March 2016 through December 2016. The products have been found to potentially have inaccurate dosage delivery.
If a patient experiencing a serious allergic reaction (i.e., anaphylaxis) did not receive the intended dose, there could be significant health consequences, including death because anaphylaxis is a potentially life-threatening condition. As of October 26, 2015, Sanofi has received 26 reports of suspected device malfunctions in the US and Canada. None of these device malfunction reports have been confirmed. In these reports, patients have described symptoms of the underlying hypersensitivity reaction. No fatal outcomes have been reported among these cases.
EpiPen coupons are available in our office or at:
