I can't stand her. You would think doctors working with babies would want to try or even know about natural remedies first. She wanted me to put cortisone on my newborn's head, when you don't need to do use something so harsh! When I left hospital my son's was slightly jaundice-she wanted me to supplement with formula...I called the Lactation Expert and I just increased breast feeding and within a day he was fine! She does not have a schedule to accommodate working moms, having to take a day off work for a check-up when. I am a teacher is ridiculous! At one appointment she said, oh, your son had a growth spurt..no he didn't he had been growing steadily at that point.
Her manner is nice, but she is the epitome of the McDonaldization of medicine. Doesn't know her patient and doesn't care to.

I can't say enough about Dr. Colby. She has been such a fantastic doctor to my two children for the last four years. She is warm and welcoming, and always puts my kids at ease (now 4 and 6). They actually look forward to seeing her, even though they've had shots at nearly every physical. Now that's great bedside manner! She welcomes questions and always takes the time to answer thoroughly. She involves parents in the treatment plan by informing them of the options and discussing pros and cons. Any time our kids have had an urgent medical issue, they've either seen us the same day, or referred us to the urgent care in the same building. Dr. Colby herself often calls with test results, even if they're benign. So much more personal than waiting to get a postcard in the mail! When a referral to a specialist is warranted, she refers right away, unlike other pediatricians who seem to give the runaround. I trust her expertise and judgement completely. The only downfall of being such a fantastic pediatrician... you have to book preventative or annual appointments several weeks ahead. It's a small price to pay for knowing my children's health is in great hands!

I just moved here from out of state and I was so worried that I wouldn't find a Dr for our 16 month old daughter as good as the one we had in Az. I found Dr Colby and couldn't be happier! She is very calming to my daughter and me! She answers questions and takes the time during all of her visits. We never feel rushed out like at some Dr. offices. I highly recommend her for any child!

We are very pleased with Dr Colby. She has been treating our daughter since day 1. Although our daughter is only 18 months old, we are sure we will have Dr Colby as our pediatrician for years to come. So happy she is in Valencia, CA!!

Dr. Colby cared for my two sons while she practiced in Plano, Tx and we were sorry to see her go! She was always thorough with her care and diagnosis. She made the kids feel comfortable and always had time for questions.

Dr. Pamela Colby has been one of the best pediatricians that I have ever seen. Her bedside manner and interaction with the children is excellent. She gives you her undivided attention when listening to your questions and concerns. She doesn't just shrug off symptoms as being a phase and instead truly diagnoses the underlying problems. I will continue to have my two little ones as her patients until they come of age, despite the long wait times to get an appointment.

She is very caring and patient, she did a good job taking care of my newborn with jaundice we had to take the baby for blood draws everyday for a week and she ordered the lights needed to be delivered at home . I just wished someone in the hospital could notice the problem before us parents mentioned to them.

I find Dr. Colby to be thoughtful and efficient. She has treated both of my pre-teen and teenage daughters. My own regret is that I didn't find her sooner!

We have been seeing Dr Colby now for the last year for my son's well baby checkups. She is very professional, kind and thorough. I like the way that she talks to the babies and plays with them in her office. We are very lucky that we found her (I just happened to find her by accident through my insurance company) and very pleased with her care.

Dr. Colby is fairly new to our area. The first time I met her she put me right at ease. My daughter had strep throat, and had been up all night complaining of a sore throat. Dr. Colby immediately diagnosed her and got us on antibiotics right away.

She is one of the only doctors that I have ever met that actually plays with the children in her office. She gets them to relax, and talks to them like they are real people. She asks them what is wrong rather than just excusing what they are saying to listen to the parents. My kids both love her, and I do too!

PROS: Very thorough and professional, yet loving and kind
CONS: Only works for Facey so others cannot enjoy her care
