After Hours & Emergencies


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

After Hours Care

Answering Service

When an urgent need arises after our scheduled office hours, you can reach our practitioner on-call through our answering service at our three main office numbers:

Your call will be answered and appropriate recommendations will be made. After hours calls will be forwarded to a specially trained nurse at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Please have a pharmacy number available when calling. If we feel that your child needs to be evaluated, we prefer to use the emergency room at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

We have found that answering services and mobile companies are not flawless. If your after hours call is not returned in a reasonable amount of time, please call the service back and let them know this is the second time you have called.

Children's Healthcare of Atlanta

Another option is to visit a CHOA urgent care facility when our office is closed. CHOA has 8 urgent care locations and they are open 7 days a week. You can find addresses, phone numbers and wait times for the CHOA urgent care closest to you by clicking here.


  • They DO NOT treat life threatening or Emergency care services. Patients requiring this type of care will still need to visit Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.


    Note: If your child receives care out of town or after hours from another practitioner, please bring a copy of the visit to our office, or ask them to mail / fax a copy so we can keep your child's medical record complete.
