After Hour Care
Although the office may be closed, there is always someone available 24/7 to cover our patients’ urgent needs. Please call us at 678-990-2501 and you will be given instructions on how to proceed.
We use Pediatric Triage Nurse services through Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA). On rare occasions (like holidays), there may be a delay in speaking to the nurse. If you feel that your wait time has been excessive, please call back. The nurse will offer medical information based on protocols which exist for almost every situation. If the nurse feels that it is an emergency or warrants the doctor’s attention, she will refer you to the on-call doctor who will call you back. Please turn off your answering machine and anti-caller ID block. You should expect a call back within 30 minutes. If you are concerned that you have not been called back quickly enough, please try calling us again. Sometimes we have been given the wrong callback number or there may be a malfunction with our cell phones.
If your child should require after hours care, we refer patients to be seen at CHOA urgent care centers – the nearest urgent care centers are located at The Collection at Forsyth and Northpoint. The 2 children’s hospitals in the area include Scottish Rite and Egleston. http://www.choa.org/urgentcareforsyth
All patient visits are by appointment only. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to appointment time, if you are a new patient, to allow for insurance verification or 10 minutes prior to appointment time, if you are an established patient, to allow for any time needed to update your insurance information in our system.
We try to keep the office running smoothly but emergencies, late arrivals, and unscheduled appointments may delay our normal schedule. Please realize that we always try to give each patient the necessary time, so your understanding of unexpected delays is appreciated.
Please call our office at 678-990-2501 to verify that we accept your insurance. You will then be able to select an appointment time that meets your needs. You may pre-register through the patient portal or download the new patient information forms. Once these forms are completed – they can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 678-990-2505 before your appointment date.
For sick appointments – call 678-990-2501 to schedule appointment. Please do not email for a sick appointment as it may inappropriately delay care for your child.
For well appointments – (including school/camp/sport physicals or consultations) – These visits are scheduled in advance. Since our schedule allows us to book appointments several months in advance, you may book an appointment in advance as you leave the office. If not, please call us today at 678-990-2501 or submit an appointment request using the Patient Portal. We will try to remind you by phone approximately 24 hrs in advance. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call us to cancel as soon as possible.
