"Dr. Hughes is wonderful. He definitely makes the parents and child feel comfortable. He interacts on a child's level and totally relates to the kids."
Southwest Georgia Pediatrics is located at the corner of 5th Avenue and North Monroe Street, behind Tift Park.
The office will be closed on the following days: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
On weekends and holidays, we do not have scheduled appointments, but our physicians will usually make arrangements if they think a child needs to be seen. Your health insurance may not pay the additional charge for a weekend visit.
After hours, call 229-888-8121 and the answering service will contact the on call doctor to return your call. We make every effort to avoid sending you to the emergency room. However, at times, this will be necessary. If this occurs, the emergency room doctors will evaluate and treat your child. The emergency room will only contact us if there is a need to admit your child or if follow-up needs to be arranged.
For life-threatening emergencies, call “911” or proceed to the nearest emergency department.
