Griffin Pediatrics began caring for children in our community over 50 years ago.  Dr. James Dunaway established the practice in 1962. We are proud to continue a tradition of providing up to date, quality medical care for children.

All of our pediatricians are board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and are Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics. One of our four pediatricians will care for your child when you visit our office.

Our mission is to provide a medical home for a community of healthy, happy and well educated children.

When the office is closed and you have an urgent concern,  call 770-227-5510.

Your call will be answered by our answering service and then sent to a nurse help line to assess your child's immediate needs.
