On weekends and holidays, when an illness clearly cannot wait until the next weekday, a physician is available at the office on Saturday mornings between the hours of 9:00 am and 10:00 am. We do not have scheduled appointments for the weekends and holidays, but our physicians will usually make arrangements if they think that a child needs to be seen. Your health insurance may not pay the additional charge for a weekend visit. We will see only acutely sick children on the weekend.
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.
