WHAT TO BRING (AND NOT BRING) TO YOUR CHILD'S EMOTIONAL BABY CHECKUPS?

  Please bring proof of your child's date of birth to the first appointment. Examples would be a birth certificate, passport or hospital records. Without this information, no report card indicating how your child is performing can be given.  Forms that need to be completed prior to the first appointment will soon be made available for download on-line and should be completed before the initial appointment.

     Feel free to bring video and/or audio recordings of your child in your child's current family setting. Usually parents and caregivers will bring smart phone recordings. Be careful not to bring a recording that may necessitate a child abuse report as Dr Pamela is a mandated report, whether or not she approves of the child welfare system in the state where your child resides. (There will be no surprises about child abuse reports as we will make them out together at your expense) Dr. Pamela will encourage you to keep an audio diary of your child's speech beginning with the earliest coos, screeches, cries...

     Do not bring your baby's siblings unless you have been advised to do so. You can always share video or audio recordings of your baby's interaction with siblings via a smart phone recording. Feel free to bring a diaper bag, toys and snacks if you so desire.  Dr. Pamela's practice site is strictly a smoke free environment.  You will be asked to turn off cell phones during appointments to protect patient privacy, unless we are attending to recordings of your baby.  Turing off smart phone communication can be uncomfortable for modern parents, but it is essential for several reasons, including privacy.  Parking is free and ample in the rear of the building.

We are conveniently located just off interstate 5 near the Del Mar racetrack and fairgrounds.

The parking deck ceiling is unfortunately very low. If you drive a taller than standard SUV or tall vehicle, you may wish to park on the street and simply walk into the building at the parking garage entrance.

There is a slope to walk up if you park on the street, but street parking is ample and free. Parking at the very top of the parking deck is free. There is an elevator or stairs to descend one level to the ground floor from the top of the parking deck.

The practice space, suite 110 Y is handicap accessible, and opens to a courtyard with a table and benches on the ground floor. If you are early, it’s best to wait there or in your vehicle.
