A member of our team is always on call, ready to respond with reliable advice concerning your child’s health.
If your child is seriously ill or experiences a health-related problem that cannot wait until an appointment is available, you can reach our after-hours answering service by calling 770-812-8640. The answering service will take down your information and contact our on-call provider, who will return your call.
The on-call provider can offer phone advice for your child’s condition, help you decide if you should follow-up during office hours or advise you to take your child to a hospital emergency department right away.
Please remember that our on-call providers also provide pediatric emergency care in at each of Tanner’s hospital facilities. If an on-call provider is involved in an emergency, the response to your question may be delayed.
While there is no charge for after-hours calls, please reserve questions about feeding, development, medication refills, dosing for over-the-counter medications, scheduling or rescheduling appointments and other non-emergency questions for regular practice hours.
