Local Pediatricians for Urgent Care Visits
Continuity of care is a key factor in a child’s good health. Children benefit from an ongoing relationship with a pediatric doctor who can offer individualized care at every stage of their development. When your child faces an immediate issue, your local pediatrician is the best resource for discussing the symptoms and recommending the best treatment for their health condition.
Importantly, our pediatricians and nursing team understand how to interact with children and quickly ease any worries. Having a consistent relationship with a pediatrician builds familiarity and trust, and ensures open communication and personalized treatment. When faced with the need for an urgent care visit, having a personal doctor to address your child’s illness is always preferable to visiting a new physician.
In addition, when you suddenly need after-hours urgent care, you can contact our office or Pediatric Nurse Triage services through Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at (404) 785-5437.

Common Questions About Urgent Care
An emergency involves severe or life-threatening illnesses or injuries. Urgent care involves less pressing health issues that may still require same-day attention.
While the circumstances of each case will vary, if your child experiences breathing difficulties and has to work hard to breathe, immediately calling emergency services is recommended.
After-hours calls will initially be received by a nurse who can advise on the best medical processes for every type of illness or injury. You may be referred to a doctor if the situation requires closer attention.
