Gwinnett Pediatrics is the oldest established pediatric practice in Gwinnett County. Dr. Hal Herd founded Gwinnett Pediatrics as a solo practitioner in a small office on Old Peachtree Street in downtown Duluth, Georgia in July 1974 (See picture below). He was the first pediatrician to have a full time practice in Gwinnett County. In 1975 he moved his office adjacent to the Joan Glancy Hospital in Duluth and in that hospital he developed an intermediate care level nursery and a pediatric inpatient service. In 1980 and thereafter, new pediatricians were added with regularity as the practice grew.
We currently have 4 locations in Gwinnett County - Lawrenceville, Duluth, Dacula, and Sugar Hill. Office hours are 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Lawrenceville office is open for urgent visits only Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. We are accepting new patients under 18 years of age. We will be closed Thanksgiving Day and Christmas, New Years Day , Memorial Day, July 4, and Labor Day. Phones are open at 7:30 weekdays and 8:30 on Saturday. Doors to the office open at 8:15 a.m. and close at 4:30 p.m. weekdays. We close for lunch between 12:00 p.m. and 1:15 p.m.
All offices function with one integrated phone system and one electronic medical records system.
