If your child is ill during the day, please call our office as soon as you feel you need our assistance. We begin taking phone calls at 8:30 a.m. Your phone call will be received by our receptionist and, in most cases, directed to our nurses' voice mail. Please leave a brief message and a phone number where you will be available for the next hour or two. Our experienced nurses will call you as quickly as possible. Some illnesses require an office visit that day, some can be seen within the next few days, and some illnesses can be managed at home. Please let our nurses help you.
Well child visits are typically scheduled 6-8 weeks in advance. If your child is under age 2, we recommend that you make an appointment for your child's next well check before you leave our office. We request that you notify us at least 24 hours in advance if you are unable to keep your appointment.
First call the regular office number 770-227-5510. Your call will be answered by our answering service. Then a nurse from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Call Center will contact you and assess your child's immediate needs. If a doctor's care is needed, the nurse will call one of our five pediatricians. One of our doctors is always on call and available for emergencies. Please call us before you go to the Emergency Room.
