frequently asked questions
When should I go to the ER?
You should go to the ER for medical emergencies, such as bad falls, trauma, difficulty breathing, mental changes, poisoning, etc. For minor illnesses, it is better to avoid the ER. If your child is not particularly ill but you are thinking about going to the ER, call us first.
will you see my child if s/he doesn't follow a full vaccine schedule?
Yes. We fully respect every parent's decision on vaccines. Some of our patients do no vaccines at all, while others do the full vaccine schedule.
How is scheduling handled?
Our scheduling goals are: to give proper time to everybody, to see sick patients on the same day they call, and to have certain hours of the day set aside exclusively for health checks and newborn visits. If you have a sick child, it is best to call first thing in the morning.
We strongly discourage walk-ins.
If your child has a medical emergency that can’t wait a few hours, then go to the emergency room.

When should you see my newborn?
If there were no complications during birth, the general rule is we should see them within two days of going home from the hospital. If there were complications during birth or your baby has jaundice, you may be directed to see your pediatrician earlier. The best thing to do is to call and speak with the doctor to schedule your first appointment before leaving the hospital.
what insurance do you take?
As of October 1, 2018, the only third party payers that we accept are Amerigroup, Caresource, Peachstate, Wellcare, and Medicaid.
