Welcome!

Pediatric Physicians, PC is a friendly and welcoming medical practice for your children. Our two offices in Alpharetta and Roswell are staffed by devoted, board-certified pediatricians, practicing the best state-of-the-art pediatric care from newborns to teens, including a 100% commitment to keep your children up to date on vaccines.

We’re easy to reach by telephone–no annoying phone tree!–and there’s plenty of free parking right at the doors of both offices. Same-day sick appointments are always available.

We’re here when you need us, and we’re here to help.

New! Established patients can schedule a sick appointment online by using our Patient Portal!

Send your doc or our staff a message via the portal

Our portal is “open for business” 24/7 — so if you’ve got a question, you can send it in anytime! Watch this short video to see how.

Portal messages sent to staff are typically answered the next business day. You can also send a message directly to any of our doctors — but keep in mind that every doctor doesn’t work every day, so messages like these won’t typically be seen until the next day your doctor is in the office. Portal messages are for routine questions and followups, not for time-sensitive or urgent matters.

We also use portal messages like these to send you routine, normal lab results. You’ll get a notification any time there’s a portal message or response waiting for you.

It’s easy to schedule an appointment online via our portal

It’s now easier than ever to schedule your appointment via the portal! Here’s a video demonstration. Portal scheduling is most useful for ordinary sick visits within the next few days, quick nurse visits for vaccines, or well check ups for children 11 and under (currently you can’t schedule well checks for older children on the portal, but we’re working on that!)

If you can’t find a slot that fits your needs, or you think the appointment needs extra time or is complicated for any reason, please give us a call. It’s also best to call if you need an appointment quick, within a few hours — in that case, we can sometimes shift things around to fit you in. As always, when you call there’s no phone tree, and it’s easy to get a receptionist on the line to help with appointment scheduling or anything else!

Elderberry extract for colds and flu

Wow — we’re getting dozens of questions about elderberry and elderberry extracts to help treat cold and flu symptoms. It is “the thing” flying around Facebook! Should you try it? Here’s what we know:

  • There are zero studies of any elderberry product to help with cold or flu symptoms in children.
  • There is one small study, from 2004, of elderberry for adults with flu. It showed a very strong positive effect. But the study was funded by a company that makes and sells elderberry syrup, and it was never repeated.
  • Elderberry products seem to be quite safe. I suppose as with anything there’s a risk of allergic reactions, but in ordinary amounts I don’t think these elderberry products are likely to cause any harm.
