Office Policies

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 in 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 0-6 years and7-18 years  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 informtion 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 with any of our providers.

For answers to frequent questions about our practice or policies, see the Common Questions page.

Our phone lines open at 7:30 a.m. Mon - Friday and 8:30 a.m. on Saturday for sick appointments.  We open the office doors at 8:15 through noon then 1:15 through 4:30 p.m.  If you need to pick up anything, please call 770-995-0823 and make arrangement for pickup.
