Same Day Sick Visits

We provide an ample amount of slots in our schedule to accommodate sick visits.  During flu season, we open our schedule up for more sick visits.  If by chance you are unable to obtain a same-day appointment or unsure if you really need to come in, our highly trained Advice Nurses will assess your child's chief medical complaint and offer assistance in the most appropriate course of action which, in some cases may be to go directly to the emergency room.  Our phone lines open at 7:30 a.m. weekdays and 8:30 a.m. Saturday.

Well-Child Checkups

If your child is 24 months or younger, they are most likely on a checkup schedule.  After 3 years of age, your child should have a yearly check-up.  Well-child checkups focus on health and developmental issues. These checkups are also our best opportunity to vaccinate your child against common "childhood illnesses".  If you would like to schedule a check-up, call the office at 770-995-0823 option 1 or send a request via our patient portal.  If your child is playing sports you can get a completed sports form for free with your well-check.  If the form is not completed at the time of your well visit, you may have to wait 3-4 days for your physician to complete the form.

Nutritional Consultation

We have registered dieticians in our office for consultation. Please call to make an appointment if you have questions about "pick eaters", breastfeeding, gluten-free diets, poor weight gain, increased weight gain, or other feeding and nutrition questions. Bailey Koch and Smita Aguirre are registered dietitians and board-certified specialists in pediatric nutrition available for consultation in our Lawrenceville office.

Sports Physicals

Sports forms are FREE if your child has had a checkup within the year.  Most schools require some sort of physician's certification in order for your child to participate in a school-sponsored athletic program. Your child's sports physical will be conducted quickly and efficiently in an environment that is suitable to his or her needs. If your child has had a recent physical at GPAM, an additional exam may not be necessary. The sports physical at an outside facility does not encompass the same criteria as an annual physical.  We can complete your sports form if your child has a physical in our office within the year.  Have your sports form ready during your annual well-check - otherwise, you may have to wait 3-4 days for your doctor to complete it.

Advice Nurse Line

We have made a substantial investment in acquiring highly trained registered nurses with acute pediatric hospital experience.  Our Advice Nurse Line is always inundated with calls since they provide such an invaluable service.  Please feel free to call on our Advice Nurse line if you are a current patient.  (Option # 6 on our telephone line) The Advice Nurses follow Barton Schmitt protocols and are in direct contact with our physicians via email and phone to always keep them abreast of your child's needs. Our nurses will not give advice to children who are not our patients.


The last twenty years have seen many of the "childhood illnesses" greatly diminish in this country. This is mostly due to the development and expansion of a strong childhood immunization program through such entities as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Centers for Disease Center (CDC). Please see our immunization policy and visit our Immunizations page for more information.

Forms and Fees

We will be happy to complete your sports form at no charge if your child has had a regular annual checkup. Bring your sports form with you to your check-up visit for faster completion.  Otherwise, please give our providers 72 hours for completion of these forms.  Forms needed within 24 hours are subject to a fee.  Other forms for Katie Beckett or FMLA for parents are completed for a fee of $25.00 per form.

General Forms

We will provide you with the forms needed for your child to enter school, please call and leave a message on our voicemail. Call 770-995-0823 Option 4. If your child is out of school because of illness we will provide you a school or work excuse for that illness. All Immunization and Hearing and Vision forms needed for school are completed for FREE.
