Our Approach

At Children’s Hospital of Georgia pediatric practices, we want to be your “medical home” where you can feel confidence knowing we are there for you and your child every step of the way. Your experience with our practices can start as early as pregnancy with a “meet and greet” appointment with one of our pediatricians.  As many of us are parents ourselves, we are on your same wave length, we understand your concerns and anxieties and we celebrate your joys and milestones.  We will always make an effort to schedule your child with the same provider each time you come, because great care comes from getting to know our patients and their families.

General pediatric and adolescent medicine at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia has the area’s largest team of board-certified physicians. Our physicians are dedicated and committed to getting to the bottom of any problem your child may have and we will explain things in a way you can understand that will help you make informed choices about the care of your child.

We provide quick and easy referrals to our teams of pediatric specialists located in the Medical Office Building or at our new Wheeler Road location. That means your child has access to all the resources of one of the state’s largest academic medical centers.

Our clinics offer:

  • Same day in-person appointments for sick and well patients
  • Telehealth appointments
  • An on-site lab and a full range of in-house diagnostic testing.
