Whether your child is a newborn, infant, toddler, school-aged, a teen or a college student, we aim to provide accessible, timely treatment that meets the highest standards. Providing healthcare with heart is the commitment we make to all our patients.

Our Pediatric Services Are All-Encompassing

The staff at Vickery Pediatrics is committed to providing treatments that react to an immediate medical issue, and consultations that prevent disease through guidance on a healthy lifestyle. Our staff cares deeply about the wellbeing of our patients, many of whom will be under our care throughout their infancy, teenage years and into adulthood. Here are some additional areas of focus at our practice.

ADHD

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a fairly common condition among children, causing inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. However, as most children will experience problems with paying attention and focusing, there can be some confusion about the condition.

At Vickery Pediatrics, our pediatricians are sensitive to the concerns of parents and work closely to diagnose and manage ADHD. We offer advice, support and medication where necessary, ensuring every child with ADHD has the best chance at a successful education and excellent quality of life.

Behavioral & Developmental Disorders

If you are concerned about your child’s developmental or behavioral skills, our pediatricians can evaluate and treat the problem. Behavioral and developmental disorders cover a wide range of conditions, including autism spectrum disorder, Tourette syndrome, dyslexia, delayed speech development and more.

It’s natural for parents to feel concern when their child is experiencing developmental delays or behavioral issues. That’s why the team at Vickery Pediatrics is trained to carefully assess each child’s condition, working with parents and other specialists to give the necessary emotional, educational and medical support.

Urgent Care

If your child requires urgent care that is not life-threatening, Vickery Pediatrics is here to help. You can contact our practice at any time of day and receive guidance on the appropriate next steps.

For sick care calls outside of office hours, we use Pediatric Nurse Triage services through Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA). You can reach them by calling (404) 785-5437 after-hours. Parents can speak with a nurse, and may be referred to the on-call doctor for assistance and an appointment at a CHOA facility.

Telemedicine

Whether you are located in Johns Creek, Suwanee, Sugar Hill or the surrounding areas, your child deserves access to the best quality healthcare. We use telemedicine services as one way to provide fast, convenient and accessible care to our patients.

Parents can access the healow™ app to access their child’s health information and retrieve test results 24 hours a day. Our telemedicine services can also be used for remote appointments, and to email your doctor when the need for assistance is less urgent.

Common Questions About Pediatric Sick Care

Some frequent causes of sick visits are ongoing stomach pains, vomiting, problems swallowing, headaches, skin rashes and minor injuries. When you have concerns but don’t require an in-person appointment, you can use our telemedicine service to contact our team.
The emergency room is for severe or life-threatening issues like breathing problems, deep wounds, serious burns, broken bones and continuous bleeding. For less serious medical conditions, contact your pediatrician for advice and a same-day appointment.
A child with the flu is likely to have chills and a high fever, along with tiredness and sore muscles. If your child has a high fever and is in some distress, you can call our practice to arrange a sick visit.
