After Hours Calls/Emergencies

If you believe you have a life-threatening emergency dial 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.

If you feel that your child needs to be seen in the emergency room, we recommend using the facilities at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (either Egleston or Scottish Rite). We feel that the services provided at these hospitals are better suited for children. Please call our office line to let us know that you are going to, or have taken your child to the emergency room so that we can follow up with you and/or the emergency room physicians as needed.

  • Pediatrician is on call 24 hours a day
  • Calls are connected through our office number to an answering service
  • Concerns requiring the on-call pediatrician will be answered within 30 minutes
  • If there is no response after 30 minutes, please call back

We understand that problems or questions about your child do not always occur during normal business hours. Therefore, there will always be a pediatrician on call in case of an after-hours emergency. Your call will first be answered by our answering service, which will direct you to your insurance nurse line if appropriate. If, after you speak with the nurse, it is determined that you need to talk to the on-call pediatrician, the answering service will page the doctor. As these services are not perfect, we ask that you call the answering service again if you have not received a call back within 30 minutes.
