If your child has a minor illness there is an alternative to the Emergency Room for "After Hours Care". We are now affiliated with KidsTime Pediatrics, an after hours clinic, not far from the Lawrenceville office on Sugarloaf Parkway in Snellville and an office on Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road 1 mile from I-85. Pediatricians endorse this clinic because it is staffed with board certified pediatricians who will treat your child's minor illness that can not wait until our office is open. They are open from 6-9 P.M. weekdays and 1-7P.M. Saturday and Sunday. If your child has a sore throat, ear ache or other minor illness you may call 404-943-1979 for more information about KidsTime. This is only for minor illnesses - see their website at www.kidstimepeds.com for more information.
For emergency care - the CHOA system is the best to evaluate your child. All of the physicians are trained for children only. CHOA has an urgent care facility on Satellite Boulevard or if the illness is more threatening go to Emory/Egleston Campus or Scottish Rite campus. Call our office after hours to speak to a registered nurse so she can help you decide where you should go. 770-995-0823
