For our patient’s convenience and availability, Coastal Kids is proud to announce the opening of an additional location in Irvine at 4870 Barranca Parkway Suite 300 on May 1, 2013.
The new Irvine location will be open from 9 – 5 Monday through Friday and the provider pediatricians will be Dr. Christine Kornu, Dr. Krista Braun-Young and Dr. Steven Abelowitz. Dr. Kornu and Dr. Braun-Young are both board certified and experienced pediatricians who have been practicing in Orange County for a decade.
We are thankful for all of the support we have received over the years and for entrusting us with the care of your children. It has truly been an honor watching them grow and we look forward to many more years of caring for them.
Please feel free to visit and become acquainted with our new pediatricians who will provide the same quality of care you have come to expect from Coastal Kids.
Congratulations! Having a baby is one of the most rewarding experiences in your lives. We are committed to helping you care for your child – keeping your baby happy and healthy.
We encourage new parents to schedule a prenatal visit. This visit allows expectant parents to become acquainted with us, tour our office, and ask questions regarding the birth of your baby.
Please Note: You do not need to “register” with our office before your baby is born. If you would like one of the physicians at Coastal Kids to be your baby’s doctor, simply tell your obstetrician and the hospital staff when you arrive at the hospital to give birth. The hospital will notify our office when your baby is born. One of our pediatricians will be in to see you and your baby when they do hospital rounds that morning.
We are affiliated with the following hospitals:

As a result of Coastal Kids’ proactive planning, coastal kids anticipated a significant outbreak of novel Influenza A (H1N1) and prepared to care for it’s patients during this season. One of the most significant steps was to obtain and administer sufficient amounts of the vaccine to prevent the illness from affecting the patients and their families.
As a result, Coastal Kids was one of the first medical practices to receive and administer the different types of the H1N1 vaccine. In addition, Coastal Kids has opened it’s practice to non-patients who fit the high-risk CDC criteria that require the vaccine.
The current CDC criteria include but are not limited to the following groups:
1) persons between the ages of 6 months and 24 years old
2) pregnant woman
3) people who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age
4) healthcare and emergency medical services personnel
5) people of ages of 25 through 64 years of age who are at a higher risk for 2009 H1N1 because of chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems.
For a full detailed review if the high risk criteria please refer to the CDC website at www.CDC.gov/H1N1/
