Effective Monday, March 16, 2020

If you are experiencing a fever and cough with shortness of breath, please DO NOT walk into our office without an appointment. Please call our office at 770-929-0813. If you are having a medical emergency, call 911 or go directly to the nearest Emergency Room.

Again, we are not accepting walk-ins at this time.

If you have made an appointment please come into our lobby, check-in and you will be directed to go back to wait in your car. Our staff will reach you by your cell phone to have you come back inside for your appointment. We are eliminating our waiting room to help prevent the spread of infection. The health of our staff and you, as our patients, is of our utmost priority.

Thank you for patience during this uncertain time.


We will only schedule appointments for patients to be seen in office from 8:00am – 3:30pm, Monday – Thursday, and 8:00am – 3:00pm on Friday’s. We will also be closed on Saturday’s. Our Physician Assistants will utilize Telemedicine services via Doxy.me, Monday – Thursday from 8:00am – 4:30pm.

Doxy.me enables us to provide secure, high-quality patient care while still offering a familiar and natural office visit. All that is needed to start a Telemedicine visit is a web link to the Provider’s Doxy.me room using a cell phone, tablet, or a standard computer. No special hardware or software is necessary – only access to your device’s camera. Please call the office at 770-929-0813 to schedule your in-office or Doxy.me appointment.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in these uncertain times and for allowing us to continue to provide care for you and your family.
