Directions & Orientation For Your First Appointment

Please read this page carefully if you have not visited this is your first visit to the clinic. 

This is what the front of the building looks like from the parking lot. No address number is displayed on the building. 

This is what the front of the building looks like from the parking lot. No address number is displayed on the building. 

The first time you visit the clinic, it is easy to drive right past it, especially if you are approaching from the South (Nevada City/Grass Valley), despite it being just off of HWY 49. To make the challenge even more interesting, there are no numbers on the brown house-like building (image to your right) and bushes and trees cover it from view as you approach. You should see a Subaru in the parking lot. 

The address 17064 Old Downieville HWY. The entry to the parking lot for this address is just off of HWY 49.  The entry door is on the left side when you are facing the brown building from the parking lot. It is nondescript.  You will enter into a waiting room. To your left is a hallway. I am at the end of the hallway. Have a seat in the waiting room and I will come out and get you.  If you need to use the restroom, it is down the hallway and the entry to the bathroom is the first indent on your RIGHT.

There are other people who work in the building so please enter quietly and silence your phone.

If you have not completed the paperwork prior to your appointment, I will leave a clip board out for you on the table to your right with the Health History Form to complete. 


Driving Directions from the South

If you are coming from Nevada City center or Grass Valley. 

Please refer to this Google Street View so you know what to look for and can avoid missing the turn off.  If you pass Old Downieville HWY and end up down by the Willo Steakhouse / Newtown Rd., turn around. You went too far. 

This image shows you approaching the turn off for the parking lot to your left, just before the intersection of HWY 49 and Old Downieville HWY.  About 1/8 of a mile before you get to the intersection there is a yellow state highway symbol intersection sign on your right alerting you that the intersection of HWY 49 and Old Downieville is approaching. Slow down at this point and keep an eye out for the brown building on your left and the parking lot turn off.  The parking lot will be the first thing you see, not the brown building. The bushes and trees cover hide it from HWY 49 well. At the bottom of this page is a map link to enter in your address for specific directions from your location. 

You will see two signs hanging on the post when you turn into the parking lot: Tom Young and Sweet Arrivals Midwifery. I don't have a sign up yet, but this is the right place. 


Driving Directions from the North

If you are coming from the North (from Newtown Rd or North San Juan) it is much easier to see the building and parking lot entrance. You can go to this Google Street View to see clinic building and the intersection of HWY 49 and Old Downieville HWY.  The entrance to the parking lot is on your right just after the Old Downieville HWY turn. You will see two signs hanging on the post, Tom Young and Sweet Arrivals Midwifery. I don't have a sign up yet, but this is the right place. 

Enter specific directions from your location.
