The La Jolla Clinic
The La Jolla office is situated in the HM Poole medical office building, to the left of Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. The building has three entrances, and parking is ideal in the ‘Parking C’ structure. However, the parking lot is controlled by a particular commercial company, and only disabled parking is approved by the valet station from outside the clinic’s main entrance. Their office suite number is 228.
The Chula Vista Clinic
The Chula Vista location is right across the road from the Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center Emergency Department. Their office is in the structure with the enormous numbers ‘750’ on the upper right front face. There is single access on the left phase of the building, and free parking is provided just within the very vast parking area next to the tower’s front, back, and left side. When you enter the building, take the elevator on your left to the second floor and to office number 14 (the very first door on the left as you walk down the corridor).
