After Hours & Emergencies
If you believe you have a life threatening emergency, dial 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
After Hours Care
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:
- Alpharetta: 770-751-0800
- Crabapple: 770-343-9900
- Cumming: 770-888-2882
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 beeper 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.
Kids Time Pediatrics
Another option is to visit Kids Time Pediatrics, an urgent care facility that we are utilizing for our patients after hour care needs. Kids Time is locally owned by pediatricians. They currently have 5 locations and most are open 7 days a week - the Alpharetta location is only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The closest location to all three of our locations is located at:
4000 North Point Pkwy
Alpharetta, GA 30022
Kids Time performs all the services we do in our office such as:
- breathing treatments
- strep tests
- urine cultures
- blood draws
- treatment of minor burns
- insect bites
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. You may research Kids Time at www.kidstimepeds.com.
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.
