At Gwinnett Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, our goal is to provide your children with quality health care. To ensure that everyone receives the service their health requires, we have employed the following list of policies. We ask that you please respect these policies when bringing your children to our offices or communicating with our staff. Thank you.
A Conservative Pediatric Philosophy
Gwinnett Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine is proud to provide traditional, conservative health care in agreement with recommendations and guidelines offered by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
We do not experiment with unproven alternative-medicine practices but instead prefer to provide you with the highest quality of medical care, firmly grounded on established and time-tested medical practices and research. This philosophy governs our actions in many areas of medical care-giving including Compliance with recommended vaccination schedules for childhood immunizations, judicious use of prescriptions, and avoidance of alternative treatment regimens and herbal remedies.
Simply put, we value you and your child and are unwilling to provide you with any level of care we deem experimental or unproven. To ensure proper preventative care, we follow the vaccination schedule as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We understand that you may have questions about these vaccines. We are happy to discuss each vaccine, recommend reliable resources for you to get more information, and answer any questions you may have. If you decide you do not want your child to receive vaccines, we will ask that you find another medical home for your child. Please feel free to discuss this with any of our providers.
Gwinnett Pediatrics has a ZERO tolerance policy including but not limited to threats of or actions of aggressive behavior, unreasonable expectations, bullying, profanity, lying, stealing, and physical and/or verbal abuse. This includes to our staff, their families, other patients, and their families. Any display of this behavior will be subject to being terminated as a patient from this office and the involvement of law enforcement where necessary.
