All of our doctors strongly recommend that all adults and children down to age 5 be vaccinated against COVID (and boosted, when appropriate.) The best and fastest way to get a COVID vaccine for your child is from a community site: Viral Solutions, Covid Care GA, Test4Free, Walmart, Kroger, CVS, and Walgreens are all good options.
We have PCR-based COVID testing available with rapid results for our patients seen by appointment at our offices. If you or your child has suggestive symptoms, PLEASE STAY IN ISOLATION until you can verify that COVID testing is negative. We CANNOT test asymptomatic patients.We CANNOT test parents or other family members who are not our patients. Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has reopened testing for any reason for age 6 months and up at their Satellite Blvd urgent care site (testing now done by CovidCareGA) and just outside the Emergency departments at Egleston, Hughes Spalding and Scottish Rite. For other testing options,click here, here, or here. For some indications, a home test may be appropriate.
The best way to contact us is via your child’s portal. Phone calls after 3:00 may be returned the next business day.
Masks are required AT ALL TIMES while inside either of our offices for children school-age and above and all adults.
ATTENTION: Wellcare families – the Wellcare program has been terminated. You MUST follow certain steps outlined here to remain patients at our practice.
RETESTING POSITIVE COVIDS... what is it good for? Absolutely nothing! Say it again!Schools: PLEASE stop it with the requests for repeat testing. This is not recommended. Repeat testing after positives may remain positive -- some PCR tests for up to 2 months -- but that does NOT mean the person is still contagious. With acute COVID, people should mask for 5 days then may return to school/work as long as can mask well for another 5 days (if cannot mask, isolate for full 10 days.) There is no role of repeat testing. It's a waste of resources and is not helping. Good God Ya'll! ... See MoreSee Less
