If you are expecting…
Congratulations! We look forward to meeting you and your newborn.
*Please note that the physicians at both of our locations are accepting only a small number of newborns into their practices, primarily the siblings of existing patients.
We care for newborns at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, and Drs. Wood and Del Re care for their newborns at Scripps Encinitas. When registering for your admission, please list Coast Pediatrics Del Mar or Carmel Valley, or the individual doctor’s name as your pediatrician. The hospital will notify us when your new baby arrives. We will visit your newborn each morning until you go home. If you have a baby boy and choose to have him circumcised, we can perform this procedure at the hospital or in the office.
If delivered at a different facility, your baby will be cared for by pediatricians on staff at that hospital. Once you leave the hospital, we would be delighted to take over.
Your newborn’s first office visit will be 1-3 days after leaving the hospital. Please call our office to schedule this appointment when you are discharged. To save time at your first appointment, here are some forms you may want to review before your visit. To save even more time, print them at home and fill out/sign in advance of your visit.
